Welcome to the Legal Assistance Center The mission of the Legal Assistance Center (LAC) is to help persons who choose to represent themselves in court. Our legal system can be overwhelming and confusing. Legal representation is expensive and may be out of reach for some. In 2009 over 14,000 patrons were served by the LAC. After assessing each patron's particular circumstances LAC staff will explain the legal options and procedures. Court forms and instructions are available at the LAC, along with informational flyers about numerous legal issues. On site notary and copy services also assist patrons in preparing required court documents.
Our Services The LAC can assist you with a variety of non-criminal matters, including: * Divorce * Child Support * Parenting Time * Custody * Paternity * Landlord-Tenant * Small Claims * Court-Fee Waivers * Judgment Collection

If the problem is not a legal one, or is best handled outside the legal system, a recommendation to a community social service agency will be given. If legal consultation is appropriate the LAC will direct patrons to suitable representation by free, low cost or private attorneys.

You can Help - Donate to the LAC If you would like to give people hope and help, when their lives are dominated by the stress of legal disputes, please make a donation by check or PayPal. The LAC is a 501(c)3 organization, so all contributions are tax deductable.
