The Legal Self-Help Center is available for all parties who do not have an attorney and need assistance in filling out court forms. The Self-Help Center is not a substitute for being represented by an attorney. The Self-Help Center cannot advise you on how you should pursue your case nor can the Legal Self-Help Center represent you in court. If you need to be represented in court, you will have to retain an attorney who can help you with your case.
The Self-Center can assist you with court paperwork in the following types of cases:
1. All family law matters (dissolution, legal separation, establishing parentage for unmarried parents, custody and visitation and spousal support and child support, except Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (getting an order for distribution of a retirement or pension plan) and Marital Settlement Agreements, except that the Self-Help Center can provide you with a Marital Settlement Agreement form which you can fill in and attach to your Dissolution or Legal Separation Judgment.
