The San Diego Superior Court announced today that the Family Law Facilitator’s Office will be closing at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays effective June 6, 2023, to allow staff to participate in required training sessions.

The Family Law Facilitator's Office (FLF) provides free assistance to people without attorneys who may have questions about family law issues. Employees can help prepare court forms and provide general legal information. The FLF office is operated by court staff attorneys, paralegals, and clerks with experience in Family Law.

“The Family Law Facilitators’ office assists thousands of people each year and the training we provide to our team helps us to continue providing the highest level of service,” said Superior Court Executive Officer Michael Roddy. “We are aiming to minimize the impact to the public by closing just 30 minutes early once a week.”

The online FLF Portal has resources that are available 24/7, including a form finder that can help to narrow down which forms you'll need for your specific family law project, answers to frequently asked questions, and the ability to make appointments for workshops and video chat sessions.

The FLF Dissolution of Marriage Workshop video is available online in English and Spanish as a resource for those who are interested in learning more about how to start a divorce or separation filing.

FLF will maintain regular business hours for in-person and remote services at the Central, North County, East County, and South County courthouses from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday; and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. The Juvenile Courthouse offers FLF assistance on adoption cases on Fridays only.
