Self-Help Resources

Texas law requires the clerk of each court to make available to pro se litigants (persons representing themselves in court) information on self-help resources. The Texas Office of Court Administration has compiled many resources of interest and assistance to pro se litigants. That website can be accessed here.

Pro se litigants may visit the Texas Law Help website for information about different areas of law and links to forms that may be helpful in justice court proceedings.

The Texas State Law Library contains a wealth of information and is accessible here.

The Harris County Law Library also contains helpful information and has links to area legal aid organizations. That website is accessible here.
