The LA Family Law Help Center is available to assist self-represented litigants with preparing forms and answering questions about how to proceed with a family law matter. The LA Family Law Help Center staff does not represent you in court and no staff of the LA Family Law Help Center (other than an attorney) can, or will, give you legal advice.
If you receive assistance from an attorney at the LA Family Law Help Center, it is important to understand that the attorney that assists you is not your attorney, and will not be representing you in court. There is no attorney-client relationship between you and anyone in the LA Family Law Help Center. Communications between you and the LA Family Law Help Center staff are not confidential. If you want personalized advice or strategy, to have a confidential conversation, or to be represented in court, you should contact another organization or find your own attorney to consult with. The LA Family Law Help Center is not responsible for the outcome of your case.
