Welcome to our online scheduling system. To get started, please use the drop down menus on the left. To schedule an online appointment, please have your Credit Card or Bank Card ready.
Self Help Center services are available to all persons who are or will be parties to a Family Law case, a Residental Landlord/Tenant case (Non-Payment Rent only), or a Small Claims case (Not for injunctions, criminal, traffic, expungement, guardianship, probate, real property, foreclosures, commercial landlord/tenant, civil claims over $5,000, appeals, bankruptcy, federal case, etc.) and are not already represented by an attorney.
The information that you give to and receive from Self Help Center personnel is NOT confidential and may be subject to disclosure at a later date. If another person involved in your case seeks assistance from this center, that person will be given the same type of assistance you receive.
Consulting with the Self Help Attorney is limited to assistance with court-approved forms and procedural information. Meeting with a self help attorney is not intended to establish an attorney-client relationship. If more detailed legal assistance is required, it is best to consult with your own attorney.
Attorney appointments may only be scheduled for a minimum of 15 minutes to a maximum of one hour. All appointments must be scheduled in 15-minute increments, i.e., 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes at a rate of $1 (one dollar) per minute, therefore payments will be $15, $30, $45 or $60 accordingly.
Attorney consultation fees must be paid at the time the appointment is scheduled. The Self Help Center accepts credit card payments as well as cash, check or money order. Refunds will not be issued for cancelled or missed appointments. Appointment times may not be changed once set.
If you have any questions about our services, please give us a call at either our Clearwater office at 727-464-5150, or our St.Petersburg office at 727-582-7941, and we will be glad to answer any questions.
