Montana Supreme Court Self-Help Law Program

The State of Montana Court Help Law Program assists self-represented litigants with access to Montana legal resources and information.

The Court Help Law Program is an initiative of the Montana Supreme Court which assists Montana residents with civil (i.e. non-criminal) legal problems. Assistance is provided without regard to income. Our goal is to give you the information you need to understand your legal rights and responsibilities and help you resolve your legal problems if you do not hire an attorney. Examples of legal problems the program can assist with include:
  • Dissolution of Marriage (divorce)
  • Parenting Plans (custody)
  • Consumer Credit
  • Landlord-Tenant Disputes
  • Orders of Protection


In addition to helping you find legal forms and instructions, the program can also provide referrals to other community resources (e.g. Montana Legal Services Association, Office of Consumer Protection, etc.).

Legal Advice

Please note, however, that the Court Help Law Program cannot provide you with legal advice or represent you in court.
