Do you have a question for the Self-Help Center? Get help back by email! But first, please take the time to review information on our Self-Help site to see if your question is answered there.
Due to staffing shortages it may take up to 2 months for the Self-Help Center to respond to emails and phone messages. Do not submit questions about legal issues that need to be handled immediately. Other issues, even though they are not emergencies, may be time-sensitive. Your legal rights may “expire” while you are waiting for an answer from the Self-Help Center. If you are unsure, it is a good idea to visit the Self-Help Center in person or contact an attorney who can advise you.
Staff at the Self-Help Center cannot give you legal advice, only legal information or referrals to other resources that may be able to help you. If you visit in person, please read this flyer for information on how to use the Center.
How is legal advice different from legal information? Legal information is a statement of what the law or legal process is, leaving up to you the decision of how to proceed. Legal advice tells you how you should proceed.
