Have a Question? The Center can provide information in a variety of areas including forms simplification and/or automation; accessible online information; user friendly e-filing; training of judges, clerks and other court staff, using federal IV-D funding in child support cases, developing a JusticeCorp volunteer program, setting up self-help centers or hotlines, and using pro bono assistance to help self-represented litigants. Contact us if you have questions, and we can get you started with basic information, phone conversations with experts, or more extensive on-site technical assistance.
Please email us at email@example.com.
The Center also offers assistance to state and local courts interested in gaining specific expertise on implementing an access to justice program, practice or service. The assistance is flexible and typically involves a few days of an expert’s time on-site or through conference calls. The assistance also can take the form of sending representatives from one jurisdiction to another to learn first-hand how to implement a specific improvement program or practice. For more information on applying for TA funding for your project, see the Technical Assistance Request Form.
