This is a list of some things the Court Service Center staff CAN do for you:

  • give you general information about court rules, procedures, and practices.
  • give you court schedules and information on how to get a case heard by the court.
  • give you information about your case file.
  • give you work space, where available, to prepare your forms and documents.

This is a list of some things we are UNABLE to do for you:
  • tell you whether or not you should bring your case to court.
  • tell you what words to use in your court papers. (However, we can check your papers for completeness. For example, we can check Staffed Information Deskfor signatures, notarization, correct Judicial District, correct case number, and presence of attachments.)
  • tell you what to say in court.
  • give you an opinion about what will happen if you bring your case to court.
  • talk to the judge for you.
  • let you talk to the judge outside of court.
