OREGON - Ogle County opens up a place to help people who can't afford a lawyer.

The Legal Self-Help Center, 106 South Fifth Street, relies on a new online program meant to help county residents find their way through the court system.

The program helps you put together the forms needed to get into court without getting a lawyer involved. "So that they can potentially get answers to their questions and do it in a way that is respectful to them and they feel that they have been given a quote, unquote fair-shake when they came to the courthouse," said 15th Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Michael T. Mallon.

Ogle County plans to get more places, like libraries, to provide this online legal aid.
