The Access to Justice Committee serving Adams and Broomfield counties has partnered with the Seventeenth Judicial District to open a Self Help Resource Center in the Adams County Justice Center. The center will launch January 5, 2011.
On Monday mornings and Wednesday afternoons, court staff and volunteer attorneys will be available to answer questions about court processes in domestic relations and family cases. While Center staff members are prohibited from providing legal advice, they will help visitors with forms, information about local procedures, internet resources, and other resource materials.
Our ultimate goal is to develop and define the self help center to be a user-friendly resource,” said Chief Judge C. Vincent Phelps. “We want to ensure that those in need of access to justice have the necessary resources and information available to them.
