Mandatory Review of Documents

The Becker County Law Library has established a Self-Help Clinic to assist people without lawyers. It is staffed by an individual with legal knowledge. The Self-Help Clinic is available in the Becker County Law Library located in the basement of the older part of the Becker County Courthouse. The office is staffed:

  • Mondays from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
  • Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

By Order of the Becker County District Court, when a party is not represented by an attorney, certain documents must be reviewed by a staff member of the Self-Help Clinic before filing them with the court. The types of documents that must be reviewed before filing are as follows:

  • All Family Law Matters, excluding those brought in the expedited process

Therefore, if you wish to file a document listed above, you must first have it reviewed in the Self-Help Clinic. After review, the staff person will certify that the document has been reviewed and at that point, you may file it with the court.
