MD Judiciary: Legal services providers can now link unrepresented litigants to live chat

newchatbuttonimageonServices are available Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Lawyers will answer questions about civil District and Circuit Court matters including landlord and tenant, family law (divorce, custody, child support, guardianship, name change), small and large claims, criminal record expungement, consumer finance (debt collection, car repossession), domestic violence, foreclosure, mandamus and more. For more information about the work of the Maryland Courts Self-Help Center, click here.

Live chat offers many benefits to self-represented litigants, including short wait times for information and advice (typically 10 seconds or less) and a written record of next steps and referrals. Litigants can access live chat from mobile phones, tablets and desk top computers.

Organizations that are interested in adding the chat button to their websites may contact  lonni.summers@mdcourts.gov or call 410-260-1256.
