Virginia Judicial System Court Self-Help Website

The Supreme Court of Virginia offers a website to aid self-represented litigants in the Commonwealth. The Virginia Judicial System Court Self-Help Website, http://selfhelp.vacourts.gov/, provides neutral legal information as a public service in topical areas commonly sought by self-represented litigants, such as traffic tickets, divorce, and landlord and tenant issues. The Virginia Judicial System Court Self-Help website features glossaries of legal terms used in the district and circuit courts and instructions for routine processes, with the goal of making the courts more accessible for all citizens.

A project of the Virginia Access to Justice Commission, the Virginia Judicial System Court Self-Help website addresses various case types and organizes information from the Virginia Judicial System Website and other sources into user friendly content areas. Selfhelp.vacourts.gov features responsive design that works on computers, smartphones, and tablets.
