Chula Vista Family Law Facilitator

How to Receive Services (Intake)
Assistance is provided on a first come, first served basis. Sessions for walk in assistance fill up quickly so arrive early and be prepared to wait. Before assistance can be provided, you will be required to fill out and sign an Intake/Disclosure form. The form requests basic information from you, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc., court and case related information, and what type of assistance you are seeking. A staff person will review your intake form with you and determine how they can help.

Assistance with forms to start an action for divorce, legal separation, or nullity is provided through a workshop, appointment only, and not through walk in assistance.

For walk in assistance, depending on the number of individuals in the session and the issues involved, your wait time could be all morning or all afternoon. Priority is given to domestic violence restraining orders and cases just heard in the courtroom and referred to the FLF. If you have an appointment for a workshop, assistance should be completed within the time frame scheduled for the workshop.

Who We Are
The staff of the Family Law Facilitator's Office (FLF) is available, at no cost, to help unrepresented parents and parties who have questions about family law issues. They can help prepare court forms and provide general legal information. The FLF is staffed by court attorneys, paralegals, and clerks with experience in family law. The FLF does not assist parents or parties who have an attorney of record on file. The attorneys at the FLF are not your lawyers, but are neutral court employees who do not represent any parent or party and may provide information and services to all parties in the case.
 
Help is provided through group workshops and walk in assistance. Assistance is provided on a first come, first served basis. Sessions for walk in assistance fill up quickly so arrive early and be prepared to wait.
 
Assistance with forms to start an action for divorce, legal separation, or nullity is provided through a workshop, appointment only, and not through walk in assistance. During the FLF divorce workshop you will receive help in a classroom setting filling out the required court forms. Also included in the workshop is a review of the completed paperwork before it is filed to ensure completeness and accuracy. A thorough review of the Petition is especially important because if the Petition is not filled out correctly it can cause substantial delays (like having to amend and re-serve the other party) as well as other problems getting the case to judgment.
