More Help At Hand For Self-Representing Litigants In Ventura County
If you’re planning to represent yourself in court - perhaps for a family matter – there’s more help at hand in Ventura County.
Representing yourself in court can be a way to save costs, but it’s also daunting and complex for non-legal professionals.
Ventura Superior Court has launched Self-Help Call-Centers to help self-represented litigants navigate the services available.
Jodie Prior, Managing Attorney of Ventura Superior Court Self Help Centers, says the service is an extension of the outdoor self-help triage they now offer to guide and direct people to the best source of help for their needs.
For Civil issues, self represented litigants may contact the Civil Self-Help Call Center at (805) 289-8812. The Center accepts calls from 1:30pm to 3:30pm Monday through Friday, except for court closures and holidays.
For Family Law issues self represented litigants may contact the Family Law Self-Help Call Center at (805) 289 8732. The Center accepts calls from 1:30pm to 3:30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, except for court closures and holidays.
Spanish language assistance is also available at both centers.
