Going to court or tribunal without the help of a lawyer

Welcome to our section for people who are having to go to court or go to a tribunal without the help of a lawyer.

We have lots of really helpful information here. Logo for the Litigant in Person Support Strategy
The first
 guide explains how you may be able to get help (and what kind of help you can get) with your case.  Then the 'Going to Court' series of 5 guides shows you step-by-step how to take things like claims for compensation or consumer disputes to court. Next you'll see the Advicenow guides to taking different family issues to court. We also have a short film looking at how to represent yourself in family court - although it will be helpful for people representing themselves in other courts or tribunals too. 

We will publish more resources to help with other issues (particularly tribunals) as soon as we can.
