When You Don't Have a Lawyer, You Still Have Help

Most family court custody cases have at least one participant who is not represented by an attorney. The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), a grantee of the Family and Youth Services Bureau, has developed a series of guides for self-represented litigants. The guides cover everything from ways self-represented litigants can find help with their cases to how to present evidence in court. Learn more about these guides and the work of NCJFCJ’s Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody.
