Representing Yourself in Court

If you need help with a legal matter and cannot afford an attorney, there are resources available to assist you. Individuals who represent themselves in court cases without the assistance of an attorney are called self-represented litigants.

These resources are provided in conjunction with the Kentucky Access to Justice Commission, which is committed to the idea that all Kentuckians deserve access to justice. The KAJC is collaborating with attorneys and legal aid organizations throughout Kentucky to assist low-income individuals with non-criminal legal issues. These issues include divorce, child custody, child support, eviction, foreclosure and veterans issues, among others.

To get started, you can find legal tools online, download publications and legal forms, and contact the legal aid society that serves your region in Kentucky.
