About SHARP

SHARP (Self Help and Referral Program) is a Self Help center that provides general assistance to people who do not have attorneys. Assistance is provided in the areas of family law, guardianships, evictions, small claims, name changes, guardianship, and restraining orders.

SHARP paperworkThis program provides assistance to all parties in a case; SHARP assistance providers, although operating under the supervision of an attorney, do not give legal advice. They provide help with forms, legal information and education, not legal strategy and/or advice. Program staff will provide information about procedure, substantive law and choices that litigants may have, allowing people to make informed decisions about their case.
