I need legal help. Where can I find help via the Internet?


  1. A quick Google search using main keywords can help you find the assistance you need or educate you on how to resolve an issue.
    • Example 1: (How do I establish a conservatorship?) If a conservatorship needs to be established, search “conservatorship California” and you will be directed to information on when a conservatorship is necessary and step-by-step information on how to complete the forms.
    • Example 2: (Have I been wrongfully terminated?) If you are unsure if you have been wrongfully terminated, you can search “wrongful termination California”. There you will find what constitutes a wrongful termination and what legal action can potentially be sought.
    • Example 3: (I am in the process of a divorce. What do I do?) If you are in the process of a divorce, you can search “divorce laws in California” and you will find information about the divorce process on the California Courts site along with child support information, annulments, property during a separation, etc.
    • Example 4: (What are my rights as a tenant/landlord?) If you would like to know more about your rights as a tenant or a landlord, search “tenant/landlord rights California” or visit https://www.santabarbaraca.gov/services/home/rhm/resources/mediation.asp to view their landlord/tenant’s rights handbooks.
    • Example 5: (Have I reached the statute of limitations?) To define, a statue of limitations is a law that sets the maximum time after an event within which legal action may potentially be sought. In a personal injury situation, legal action may potentially be sought within two years from the date of injury. In a libel or slander situation, the statute of limitation is one year from the date of injury. For a medical malpractice issue, the statute of limitations is within one year after the plaintiff discovers the injury or within three years of the date of the injury, whichever comes first.
