Need some legal help but don’t want to hire a lawyer? You may need a book that evaluates self-help law products.
Halt, a non-profit organization for legal reform, reviews the most popular self-help law books, kits and software programs on the market and identifies the best and worst in nine legal areas. It may be just what you need to get a divorce, file for bankruptcy, write a will, set up a trust, incorporate a business or do a host of other things.
However, Halt does warn that while some products are excellent, some are downright dangerous and could lead an unsuspecting user into a lot of trouble. Fortunately, Halt has taken the guess-work out of legal help aids in their book, Do it yourself Law, which is available through their website, www.halt.org.
Each legal self-help product was evaluated for its up-to-date information, comprehension and ease of use as well as accuracy, plain language and quality of legal forms
