Contact Us @ SHC

The SHC can answer questions on court forms and procedures. If you have a question about your legal rights or options in your case, you should get advice from a lawyer. Your questions will be answered by a court employee, who may be an attorney. There is no attorney-client privilege or confidentiality of any information you tell the Self-Help Center. Court staff cannot give legal advice or recommend specific legal options. The Self-Help Center is not responsible for the outcome of your case. Read Disclaimer.
