Ramsey County Family Court Self-Help Service Center

Who We Are

The Family Court Self Help Service Center (SHSC) provides unrepresented (pro se) parties with access to forms available from the Minnesota Judicial Branch, explains processes and procedures to pro se parties, provides information about other resources to assist pro se parties, and reviews pro se party documents for completeness and adequacy.  These services are limited to dissolution of marriage, child support, paternity, custody and parenting time matters in Ramsey County. 
The scope of services for the SHSC does not include pro se assistance for Court of Appeals, annulment of marriage, legal separation, third-party custody, or grandparent visitation matters.  Additionally, the scope of services for the SHSC does not include pro se assistance with matters outside the scope of Ramsey County Family Court, including adoptions, termination of parental rights, or domestic abuse cases, civil, criminal, juvenile, or probate matters.
Court staff cannot provide legal assistance and cannot act as an attorney for pro se parties.  If an individual chooses to be self-represented, that individual will have the same responsibility as an attorney to follow court rules and procedures to move the case forward.
