About the Self-Help Center

The Self Help Center at Middle Georgia Justice was opened in 2020 in order to help meet the huge need for assistance in Middle Georgia on Family Law/Domestic cases. We have taken the forms from the counties that we serve (Bibb, Houston, Peach, Crawford, Jones, Monroe, and Twiggs), simplified them, and created forms that can be filled out, with assistance, here in our offices.

While many people do not need an attorney to resolve their Family Law issue, many often need assistance in filling out the required Court forms.

If you believe you could benefit from this service, call our office at 478-238-0224. Our Office Manager, Debbie, will ask you some brief questions to make sure you are a good fit for the Self-Help Center. If so, she will schedule you an appointment to use this service. The cost to you for using this service is $25, which helps us cover our costs in providing this service.

When you arrive for your appointment, you will need to read and sign our MGJ Self Help Center User Agreement.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot give you legal advice when using the Self-Help Center, and cannot advise you as to the information that goes into the forms. No attorney may render legal advice without having a signed agreement for the provision of legal services. Our role in operating the Self-Help Center is to offer you assistance, NOT legal advice.
