From the Orange County Clerk of Courts
The Orange County Clerk of Courts will be hosting the grand opening of its Self Help Center in Apopka on Tuesday, January 30th with an official ribbon cutting. The ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. at the Apopka Service Center, 111 N. Rock Springs Road in Apopka.
With the assistance of a partnership with the Orange County Bar Association (OCBA), the Clerk’s Office recently expanded Self Help services to the Apopka branch.
“The Self Help Center has been one of my biggest priorities because I know that many people in our community need affordable legal assistance which gives them better access to justice,” said Clerk Tiffany Moore Russell.
At the Apopka location, Self Help services are available one day a week on Tuesdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Self Help Center assists with Family Law, Small Claims, and Residential Evictions. Services include attorney consultations, form completion assistance, and notary and copy services.
Attorney consultations are available and may be scheduled in 15-minute sessions, for up to 1 hour per day, per person. The cost for an attorney consultation is $1 per minute. To schedule an appointment, go to our website at www.myorangeclerk.com where appointments can be made directly online.
