The Family Court Assistance Office (FCAO) is part of a statewide effort to improve the accessibility of the court system to the public. A Family Court Facilitator operates under the provisions of Oregon Revised Statute 3.428, with the authorization to provide specific services. The Family Court Assistance Office should only be contacted if you are representing yourself and have procedural questions or need clarification on family law forms.
It is important to note that as a self-represented litigant, you are acting as your own attorney. Although this service may aid you in that, it is not a replacement for valuable legal advice nor should it be considered so. Court staff are prohibited from engaging in the unlawful practice of law.
The Family Law Facilitator is available by appointment to review your completed family law forms. You may also contact the Family Law Facilitator in person, by email or phone to ask procedural questions or for clarification on family law forms.
If you would like to meet with a Family Law Facilitator to review your documents, you must first fill our your forms as completely as possible. Once you have completed your family law forms, please call 541.704.3479 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. When scheduling an appointment, we will need to know the type of documents you need reviewed, the days and times that work best for you, and your case number if you have one.
Appointments are 30 minutes in length, and are held between 1:30pm – 4:00pm, Monday through Friday, except for court holidays. Children are not allowed to attend document review appointments.
Please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your appointment. Upon arriving, please wait quietly in the 108B lobby. No cell phone use is allowed in the 108B lobby unless the sound is muted.
