ABOUT THE ACCESS TO JUSTICE CENTER

The Access to Justice Center is a free service designed for self-represented litigants who need information about specific, legal issues or court procedures. Services are provided at no charge, but participants are responsible for all court filing fees. The Access to Justice Center is staffed by an attorney who is skilled and trained to analyze the issues from the facts presented and explain the applicable law(s) and available legal and procedural alternatives, options and remedies.  Referrals to other community agencies may be made for your benefit.

The Self Help Center attorney will NOT recommend a legal alternative or option for you.

Everyone has equal access to the services of the Access to Justice Center/Family Law Facilitator/Self-Help Attorney.
