Improved Service!

New, Improved One-on-One Service Replaces Answer/Contract Workshops

As of January 1, 2013, the Sacramento County Public Law Library's Civil Self-Help Center will no longer be offering a workshop to assist people with answering complaints for a breach of contract lawsuit. Instead, Sacramento County residents, or those who have been sued by a credit card company or collection agency in Sacramento County Superior Court, can receive an hour-long, one-on-one appointment with an experienced paralegal who will discuss all of your options, including the consequences of not answering, and, if you wish, walk you through the entire process of completing the forms needed to respond to your case (including fee waiver paperwork!).  

To receive an appointment, simply arrive at the Law Library by 8:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.  Appointments are assigned in a random order determined by a lottery at 8:30 a.m. (not first-come, first-served), so there is no need to arrive earlier, but if you are not here by 8:30 a.m. you may not receive an appointment, as they are limited.  If all appointments for the day are full we will ask you to participate in the lottery again another day.

Plan your parking (and child care, if needed) so that you do not have to leave the Law Library during the lottery to feed the parking meter. The lottery is usually over by 9:00 a.m. Directions and parking and transit information are available at
