Welcome to the Self-Help Division of The Superior Court of California, County of Stanislaus where self-help services for family law matters and certain civil matters are available for self-represented Court customers who are seeking general legal information and resources. 

Self Help

Under the supervision of an attorney, staff will help you find and fill out Court forms, answer questions on how you can proceed in your case, help you understand the Court process, tell you about ways to resolve your case without the need to go to Court and refer you to other resources to satisfy your personal needs. However, the Self-Help Center does not provide legal advice or represent you in Court.


Family Law Facilitator: The Family Law Facilitator is an attorney who can provide assistance to you in representing yourself in child support and family law matters.
