The Self-Service Center is designed to provide information and forms for persons who are representing themselves in court. The information is intended to help you help yourself through the court system.

Court staff at the Self-Service Centers can provide legal information, but not legal advice. These materials may also help you determine whether your question is best suited for Self-Service Center staff or an attorney.

If you do not understand any of this information, or if you have trouble filling out any of the forms located here, see an attorney for help.

If you are representing yourself, and you download forms from this site, and prepare them yourself, it is still suggested that you have an attorney look over the papers to make sure they are correct.
