Self Represented Resource Center (614) 525-7531

The Self-Represented Resource Center is a legal center wherein low-income individuals, who do not have an attorney, can receive assistance with preparing legal paperwork. The Self-Represented Resource Center is staffed by attorneys. These attorneys do not represent you, and they cannot provide you with any legal advice. The attorneys are available to assist with Juvenile and Domestic court forms. 

If you need to obtain forms only, and do not need assistance filling them out, you may get forms at the Law Library located at 369 South High Street on the 10th Floor. 
The Self-Represented Resource Center operates on a phone and Zoom appointment basis. If you need assistance with paperwork, please call (614) 525-7531, between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm, Monday-Friday. Please leave a detailed message clearly stating your name, phone number, case number, and a brief description of what you need help with. Please note that due to a high volume of callers, it may take up to four days to receive a call back. Your call will be returned in the order in which it was received. Please make sure your voicemail is set up, and not full, for return calls.
