Welcome! The South Dakota Self-Help Center provides free assistance to people who do not have a lawyer.
While we cannot provide legal advice, we can assist as follows:
- Answer questions about the court process;
- Provide available court forms and instructions for completing those forms;
- Provide information from the public record about your case; and
- Provide information about resources that may be available to you, such as mediation, parenting coordinators and pro bono or low cost legal services.
The South Dakota Self-Help Center cannot give you legal advice, conduct legal research or represent you in court.
There is no attorney-client privilege or confidentiality of any information between you and the persons staffing the Self-Help Center.
Self-Help staff are not responsible for the outcome of your case.
If you have questions about your legal rights or what you should do in your case, please contact a lawyer for advice.
