Self Help Center

  Self Help Center

The main purpose of the self help center is to provide one centralized location where self-represented individuals can obtain some or all of the information and forms that they will need to adequately represent themselves in certain types of court actions.  The information that you receive in these packets is not to be a substitute for an attorney’s advice

The following Pro-Se information packets may be found at the Self Help Center, purchased for a $10 fee in the Prothonotary's office, or downloaded free from this website.

            Please note that Neither the staff in the Prothonotary's Office nor the staff in any office of the Courthouse will be able to give you legal advice or help you fill out/complete the forms included in these packets.  The information in the packets is not a substitute for professional legal advice.  The Court assumes no responsibility and accepts no liability for actions taken by users of these documents, including reliance on their contents.  If you have any questions concerning the packets you can review the Child Custody and Visitation Frequently Asked Questions or contact North Penn Legal Services at (877) 953-4250.

Below are several Pro Se packets available in PDF format.  You can download and print these packets.  If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader you can obtain a free copy from www.adobe.com.

Please do not change these documents or the court will not accept them.

Note:   Please contact the Prothonotary's office to inquire about filing fees for each of these packets.  The individual filing the packet is responsible for  paying the necessary filing fees.
