The Marion Superior Court Family Resource Center – created by the Family Court Project for families with legal disputes – opens Monday and will offer easier access to information about legal and social services resources.
The center will provide resources and referrals for various services such as domestic violence, protective orders, substance-abuse treatment options, and how to find an attorney. Residents filing pro se will be able to view videos that walk them through the self-representation process, as well as use public-access computers and receive assistance from a trained law librarian about how to use the Indiana Supreme Court’s self-help Web site.
In addition, the center will help consolidate cases of families with multiple civil and criminal cases under the umbrella of the Family Court.
The staff of the Family Court Project will be located in the new resource center in the west wing of the City-County Building, Room W -125, 200 E. Washington St., Indianapolis.
