District Court Legal Self-Help Office

A self help office is a place where you can learn about the law, your legal rights, and how to go to court. If you are involved in a legal issue, you can visit a legal self help center to get help answering your legal questions, find and prepare court forms, get help finding legal information about your specific issue, and receive referrals to free and low cost legal services. 

  • Self Help Center's can give detailed legal information about court matters but cannot provide you legal advice (what you should do). They can tell you the next steps, what forms you need to fill out, or when you need to show up to court next. 
  • Primary focus is on Douglas County District Court
  • The Self Help Office will launch on May 1st, and will be located the Douglas County District Court right next to the District Attorney's Office.
