One way for people to get help from CALL (Counsel and Advocacy Law Line) is by applying for help online. This may take you 5 to 10 minutes.
To apply online:
- You will need a phone number or email address where we can safely reach you,
- You must live in Michigan or have a legal problem in Michigan, and
- You must be able to name the "opposing party." This is the person or "party" you are having the legal problem with. For example: Michigan DHHS, your landlord, a debt collector, your spouse. In a few cases, like if you want a will or Power of Attorney, you don't have to name an opposing party.
If you can’t use our online system, you can call by phone at 1-888-783-8190. You can call Monday through Thursday between 9:00am - 5:00pm (and until 6:00 on Wednesday only), or Friday between 9:00am - 1:00pm. You can apply online at any time.
All your answers are private and will not be shared with anyone other than CALL.
After you submit your application, we will review it. If we think we can help you, we will call you back within two business days of when you submit your application.
We care about your safety and privacy.
