Lend A Hand Legal [www.lendahandlegal.com] is fully automated family court document web-based application for Washington State residents. Lend A Hand Legal tackles the complex problem of assisting pro se (people representing themselves) or limited representation individuals with their family court documents. In 2003 the Task Force on Civil Equal Justice Funding of the Washington State Supreme Court conducted the Washington State Civil Legal Needs Study. This study uncovered major gaps in access to civil legal assistance among middle class and low income individuals. Lend A Hand Legal was developed to address this problem. The Community App Challenge was great motivation to make Lend A Hand Legal a reality.
