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 and file family law forms or request an appointment to meet with a facilitator. Family law facilitators have open office hours in the mornings where you may ask procedural questions and receive a brief overview of the process.
Family Law Facilitators are available by appointment to review your family law forms with you. If you would like to meet with a facilitator, 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 LANFamilyCourt@ojd.state.or.us.
