Court Policy on Dispensing Legal Advice

By law, court employees, including deputy clerks, are not allowed to give
legal advice. They have no law degree and could be prosecuted for practicing law
without a license.

Deputy clerks may look over paperwork to see that the right blanks have been filled in or
that you provided the necessary names and addresses and signed at the right location, but they
cannot tell you if the content of your filing is adequate or will satisfy the requirements of
the court.

You should consult with an attorney or research the law at the library.
