Help South with Picture of Mount Rushmore

Help Line

The Legal Form Help Line was set up by the Courts in conjunction with the University of South Dakota Law School, in order to provide assistance with legal forms to individuals who are representing themselves in court (self-represented litigants). The Unified Judicial System (UJS) has developed several different forms for use by self-represented litigants and posted them on this website. If after having read through all the forms and instructions you still have questions, you may call the Legal Form Help Line toll free at 1-855-784-0004. You will be asked to leave a message with your name, phone number, best time of day to reach you, and the type of form you need help with. A law student volunteer will return your call within 2 -3 days. Please remember that the volunteer who will be returning your call is a student, not an attorney, and can only help you to fill out the forms. They cannot give you legal advice on any form, or help you with forms from any other sources. Please be sure to keep the forms handy as you will need to have them in front of you when the volunteer calls back or they will not be able to help you.
