spacer.gif (810 bytes)

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.
