Timeline and What to Expect

Self-Help Center
Timeline and What to Expect

  • Submit a Request form online. A staff member should contact you within a week*.
    • After submitting a Request and while you wait for us to contact you, please locate all relevant documents and information the staff might need to review. 
  • A Self-Help Center staff member will contact you via your preferred contact method for an intake. 
    • This is the time to provide information regarding the legal matter you would like assistance with. 
    • A phone/in-person appointment can be scheduled, if necessary. If further discussion with an attorney is not needed, staff should be able to start drafting your documents within a week*. 
    • Due to limited resources and the number of legal matters we are currently assisting with walk-ins and same-day in-person appointments cannot be accommodated at this time.

* Please note: Domestic Violence Restraining Orders have priority over other legal matters. Our goal is to assist with those as quickly as possible, typically within a few days. 

If the timeline for your matter is more urgent than our timeline allows, please reach out and the Self-Help Center will provide a list of referrals. However, you will be responsible for any fees incurred.
