Hours and Services

Self help hours are 8:00AM to 4:00PM


The Self-Help Center provides legal resources to assist those representing themselves in court. As a collaborative project with the Kern County Law Library, the Self-Help Center will share resources with the Law Library in an effort to maximize the benefit to self-represented litigants. Customers of the center have access to a wealth of information including instructional binders designed to assist with understanding common court procedures and forms. Multiple computers are available, so customers can complete or create the forms necessary. Those needing to do additional research will be able to access legal reference materials both in print and through computer databases. Staff will be available to help with the Centerís resources.


Telephone assistance is limited. We can answer simple questions over the phone but do not perform legal research and contact with an answer. Email assistance is limited too. We try our best to respond to email questions sent to us in a timely matter. However, our walk-in customers are our first priority.
