Family Court Assistance Office

The Family Court Assistance Office helps self-represented litigants in divorce, legal separation, custody, or parenting time proceedings. Family Law Facilitators can help explain court procedures, review documents, and refer to other services and resources. Family Law Facilitators cannot give legal advice.

These cases involve important decisions and may have complex legal issues that are difficult to handle without a lawyer. Because your rights may be substantially affected, we strongly recommend you seek legal assistance from a lawyer who will protect your interests. 

The Family Court Assistance Office reception window is open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. During this time you can purchase family law forms or request assistance from a facilitator. 

Family Law Facilitators are also available by telephone or email. You may schedule an appointment with a facilitator for review of your family law forms. If you would like a document review, you must first fill out your forms as completely as possible. Once you have completed your forms you may schedule an appointment by contacting the Family Court Reception Window in person, by phone at 541-682-4302, or email at You can book an appointment online.
