Explore Your County's Legal Information

Instead of exploring several different websites for county legal information, why not just go to one?

Our County Resources database offers access to county departments, forms, procedural guides, sources for legal assistance, court rules and ordinances.

From the start screen, select a county or leave the drop down at "All Wisconsin Counties". Choose whether you wish to view everything (leave all boxes selected), or whether you would only like to see certain information, like agencies, or forms. Then simply click "Go"!

This database is updated weekly. If you have corrections or suggestions for your county, contact the webmaster.

New Landlord / Tenant Links

Our Landlord / Tenant legal topic page is consistently one of our most popular. As with all our legal topic pages, we are always on the lookout for new links to help visitors when they reach our site.

In a recent visit to the Tenant Resource Center's website, we discovered and added to our website new links to timely move-in information and foreclosure handouts for tenants. Several sample forms are also now online, including checkin and checkout forms and various others for roommate, tenant, and landlord interactions.

Visitors to the Landlord / Tenant page gain central access to guides and forms from government agencies and nonprofit organizations, as well as general discussions on common rental issues. With the launch of our new website in April 2009, we also began including links to useful books, articles, and related pages and terms.
