Help Center

Address:89-17 Sutphin Boulevard, Room 235 Jamaica 11435


The Civil Court Help Centers provide free walk-in services to litigants who are not represented by an attorney and have cases pending in the Civil Court of the City of New York

Come to the Help Center and meet with a “Help Center Attorney” for free. Help Center Attorneys are attorneys employed by the Civil Court who provide legal and procedural information to self-represented litigants. These experienced lawyers, many of whom have years of legal experience, meet daily with unrepresented litigants in the Help Centers. They are neutral parties who can’t give legal advice or tell you the best way to handle your case. Help Center Attorneys can provide information:

-on how to commence cases
-on how to answer cases
-on how to collect judgments in housing and civil court
-on how to obtain or make repairs
-on filling out housing court forms or civil court forms
-on court procedure
-on landlord-tenant, civil or small claims cases
-on referrals to appropriate agencies
