The Franklin County Municipal Court’s new Self Help Resource Center is now open. The Resource Center is located on the 10th floor of 369 S. High Street, across from the Franklin County Law Library, and will be open to the public between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The Resource Center cannot provide legal advice or representation. But, people representing themselves in Municipal Court can get basic information about the court system, about forms and applications, and about other available resources. The Resource Center is only for civil matters such as applications to seal criminal records, landlord tenant, and consumer issues. The Resource Center is not for criminal or traffic cases. Those that qualify based on their financial situation can get additional assistance from staff at the Resource Center.
The Resource Center is a walk-in service, and cannot make appointments for visitors or provide information over the phone.
