The Self-Help Center provides legal and procedural information and assistance with court forms to self-represented litigants with cases in or who reside in Nevada County.
The Self-Help Center does not represent people in court and the services provided do not result in an attorney-client relationship. We cannot assist litigants who are represented by attorneys and our services are not confidential. We assist both sides of the case equally. To get legal advice or have a confidential conversation, you must speak with a private attorney.
All services of the Self-Help Center are free of charge.
The Self-Help Center / Family Law Facilitator / Small Claims Advisor / Law Library will be fully closed:
• January 28, 2022 for training. Normal office hours will resume on Monday, January 31, 2022 at 8:30 a.m.
The Law Library and Self-Help Center / Family Law Facilitator staff will not be available on these days, either in person or remotely. Emails and voicemails will not be returned until the next normal office day at the earliest.
While we are out, you can still help yourself.
