Help with forms
Try our new Guide & File programs. They are available for many types of cases like restraining orders, divorce and legal separation, child custody and child support, asking for a court date in family law cases, name change, guardianship of a minor, small claims, and more. Once you are done with the interview, the program will fill out your forms online and, if you wish, you can also e-file your paperwork.
We offer free workshops online for help filling out papers for divorce.
Step-by-step instructions online
The California Courts Self-Help Guide provides information and step-by-step instructions for many types of cases.
Children and the Court
Please do not bring children to the Self Help Center. When you come to the Court, please ask someone to care for your children as children are not allowed to come to court hearings or the Self Help Center, with very limited exceptions.
