Contacting Family Division Offices
If you are seeking assistance with filing or answering a family law complaint, such as a complaint for divorce, custody, visitation or child support, you may get help at the Court's Self-Help Office, located on the first floor of the County Courts Building at 401 Bosley Avenue in Towson. This office will give basic information about family law cases and help you with filling out complaint forms.
Most family law forms are available from the Maryland Judiciary and at the Clerk's Office on the second floor of the County Courts Building. The Self-Help Office staff does not provide assistance over the phone. There is no charge for assistance and you do not have to make an appointment; it is first come, first served. Please note that this office, nor any office of the Court, can provide you with legal advice. To hear a recording of office hours, please call 410-887-3446.
