The Family Court Information Center serves families that come to the Family Court by providing information about available resources and fostering better relations between the community and the court system.

The center has staff who can answer questions about family court procedures, case status, interpreter’s services, legal resources and other court access issues.

The staff can provide information about legal services, how to select a lawyer, or how to represent oneself, but they cannot provide legal advice.

The center also participates in community outreach efforts that familiarize the public with the judicial system.

The center can arrange courthouse tours, speaking engagements, special events and student internships.
