A resource for individuals representing themselves in civil and family court matters

The Self-Help Center at the county courthouse in Naples provides resources to individuals who are acting on their own behalf in certain civil court cases, without attorney representation, known as pro se representation. The Self-Help Center which is the first of its kind in Collier County, is available to anyone regardless of their financial situation and is especially beneficial to those who cannot afford an attorney.

Operated by the Collier County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller, the center provides approved forms for civil and family court matters involving:

  • Small Claims
  • Family Law
  • Child Custody/Child Support
  • Paternity
  • Divorce
  • Landlord/Tenant issues, such as evictions

Also provided at the center are instructions for completing the forms and computers for filing automated forms.  Staff at the center cannot provide legal advice, so it is advisable to those who are unsure how to proceed to consult with an attorney.

Services for criminal and traffic law matters are not offered at the center.

The Self-Help Center is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located at the Collier County Courthouse - Government Center, 3315 Tamiami Trail East, 3rd Floor Annex, Naples, Florida 34112.
