  • Parties on both sides of a case can get help from the Self-Help Center, and parties on both sides of a case may be helped by the same attorney or staff person at the Self-Help Center.
  • Self-Help Center services are free. Anyone who does not have their own lawyer can get help from the Self-Help Center. It does not matter how much money you make.
