Advicenow is an independent, not-for-profit website providing accurate, helpful information on rights and legal issues.
We know that many people cannot access advice or representation to deal with their legal problems so we produce step-by-step self-help guides, tools and films to help you better manage them yourself.
We have lots of help for people dealing with family issues (divorce and separation, dealing with the financial agreement, and agreeing arrangements for your children that work for everyone), whether you are agreeing it yourselves or going to court. See Help to deal with family problems - https://www.advicenow.org.uk/help-deal-family-problems
We also have lots of help for people going to court or tribunal about another issue. See Going to Court - https://www.advicenow.org.uk/content/going-court-or-tribunal-without-help-lawyer
We also have lots of help (guides and interactive tools) for people challenging disability benefit or tax credit overpayment decisions. See Help with benefit problems - https://www.advicenow.org.uk/help-deal-benefit-problems
We also have help for people dealing with problems with housing – including dealing with disrepair, eviction, homelessness, gurantors and difficulty finding anywhere. See Help with Housing Problems- https://www.advicenow.org.uk/help-private-renters
We are adding new resources to help people all the time. And we also link to the best information on the law and rights from over 350 UK websites. We don’t use a search engine, every link has been hand-picked and summarised by our team of experienced advisers, so you will find something on any law-related area.
We also offer our very popular Help directory – find national services where you can access further help and advice. https://www.advicenow.org.uk/guides/help-directory
Advicenow is famous for the quality and helpfulness of our award-winning guides. Last year, we won both the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Access to Justice through IT award and a Plain English award last year.
Advicenow is a project of Law for Life. Life for Life believes that everybody should have the knowledge, confidence and skills needed to deal with the legal problems they face.
The Advicenow team can also be commissioned to write information on any area of legal need.
