Legal Aid Self-Help Resources

Even if you do not meet the criteria to use the services of Legal Aid of North Carolina, they may still be able to help you. They offer many free resources on their website. For example, they offer a Self-Help library.

The Self-Help Library includes things like a Guide to Small Claims Court. Their website says this about the Guide: “Anyone who is 18 years of age or older has the right to start a lawsuit in the North Carolina court system. If the lawsuit is for a claim of $10,000 or less (this amount can vary by county), it can be brought into Small Claims Court, which is available in every county. This guide tells you how to fill out the right forms, prepare for trial, handle the trial, and follow through on the judge's decision.”
