The mission of the Self Help Center is to provide increased access to the legal system for self-represented individuals by providing information, education, supreme court and circuit approved forms, community and state referrals, pro bono and other legal referrals, and other support services with certain civil law matters regardless of income, or citizenship. The Self Help Center is physically located in Sarasota County but services are available to all residents of the 12th Judicial Circuit.
We provide the following services:
- Explain court process and procedures
- Assist with the identification and completion of legal forms
- Notify parties when additional information or forms are needed before the next court event can be set
- Refer individuals to pro bono and other legal referrals
