Do-It-Yourself Fee Waiver

Unfortunately, our Do-It-Yourself Tools (form filling tools) are currently unavailable because of a technical problem with one of our partner organizations. All of the other content on Michigan Legal Help is still available. If you have any trouble finding what you need and you are not sure if it is included in this outage, you can use LiveHelp to chat with us. For blank court forms, use this link to the Michigan Courts forms page. Thank you for your patience. Our partner organization is doing everything they can to restore access to these tools.

Use this tool to prepare a form to ask the court to waive or suspend the filing fees and other costs in your case. If you receive public assistance, or are unable to pay the fees and costs in your case, the court can decide to let you file without paying. You will go to the LawHelp Interactive website to do this. When you are done answering the questions, your finished forms will be ready for you to print.

During the COVID-19 state of emergency, courts must accept Fee Waiver Requests through e-Filing or e-mail. To find out if your court has e-Filing for your case type, look at the E-Filing Courts in Michigan page on the Michigan One Court of Justice website. If the court does not accept e-Filing for your type of case, contact your court clerk's office or visit their website to find out to which e-mail address you should send your Fee Waiver Request. Vist the Courts & Agencies page on Michigan Legal Help to get contact information for your court.
