The Court Assistance Office cannot provide:

  • Legal Advice – Only Your Attorney Can Give You Legal Advice
  • Give Interpretations of Laws and Strategies
  • Speculate About the Judge’s Decision
  • Tell You Words to Use in Your Court Papers

Warning: Talk to An Attorney, If Possible

The materials and assistance you receive at the Court Assistance Office are not a substitute for legal advice. The laws and court rules are complex. Following instructions and using the forms provided to you will not guarantee a favorable result. It is always advisable to talk to a lawyer about your problem before proceeding on your own. The materials on this site are meant to help you educate yourself through the process.

If you cannot afford to hire an attorney to represent you, you may be able to pay a lawyer to give you advice and review your paperwork for a lesser cost. Contact the Idaho State Bar Lawyer Referral Service (208-334-4500) for the name of an attorney in your area who will provide an initial consultation for no more than $35. Even if you do not hire a lawyer to represent you throughout the proceeding, a lawyer can look over your paperwork, give you advice on how to present your evidence, and tell you whether this type of action is right for you.
