Frequently Asked Questions related to the Northwest Oregon Facilitation Initiative (NWOFI).

​NWOFI is a regionalized approach to facilitation. Our resources will help increase access to justice and work toward ensuring that self-represented parties have access to family law facilitation in all our Northwest Oregon courthouses. Our NWOFI goal is to have a meaningful impact on parties and families in need of assistance in rural areas where those resources are not as available.​​

NWOFI family law facilitators are not attorneys, they can assist any self-represented litigant with questions regarding family law case types for any of our participating counties including Clatsop, Columbia, Lincoln, Polk, Tillamook, Washington, and Yamhill​ Counties.
