Free help is now available on the internet for
the estimated 4.3 million Californians who represent themselves in
court each year.
The California Courts Online Self-Help Center
debuted July 17 at www.courtinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp.
The new website offers more than 900 pages of
tools, resources and links for legal assistance in the areas most
needed by self-represented litigants, including divorce, domestic
violence, child custody/support, traffic and small claims.
It also offers easy-to-understand descriptions of
court procedures, information about choosing and completing necessary
court forms, and links to legal services organizations and programs
that provide legal advice and additional assistance.
