Here is the key language in the description of the bill passed by the Legislature:
- creates a self-help center within a court’s law library;
- requires that the self-help center be staffed by licensed attorneys;
- allows the self-help center staff to assist court patrons in obtaining and filling out
- documents; and
- provides that self-help center staff are to: answer questions regarding the court process, law, and options; provide information, but not give legal advice; and offer resources regarding the law library and other avenues for legal assistance.
I understand that funding is effective July 1.
