Thank you for visiting the Courthouse Facilitators' website.  The Courthouse Facilitators assist pro se litigants (persons who are not represented by attorneys) in Domestic Relations cases in selecting and reviewing forms, and with procedural instructions. The Facilitators are available primarily by advance appointment, with limited walk-in visits Tuesday a.m. and Thursday a.m. only.

Domestic Relations cases include:  Dissolution, Legal Separation, or Invalidity of Marriage; Dissolution, Legal Separation, or Invalidity of a Registered Domestic Partnership; Paternity/Parentage; Establishing a Parenting Plan and/or Child Support with a Birth Affidavit; Non-Parent Custody; Modification of Parenting Plan; and Modification of Child Support.  The Facilitators can also assist with motions for temporary orders or contempt motions in domestic relations cases.

The Facilitators Can:  

  • Explain the process if a party has to go to court
  • Identify and help locate forms for domestic relations cases
  • Help a party schedule court hearings
  • Check paperwork before a party goes to court
  • Help arrange for an interpreter for court appearance
  • Refer to other agencies for extra help parties may need
  • Compute child support per your income figures

The Facilitators Cannot:  

  • Give legal advice
  • Represent a party in court
  • Fill out forms for the party
  • Tell the party what to say
  • Provide assistance with Criminal, Adoption, Wills/Probate, Guardianship, Landlord-Tenant/Eviction, Bankruptcy, or other Civil cases

APPOINTMENTS - Fee:  $25.00 (cash or money order only)

Meet one-on–one with a facilitator to review paperwork, schedule court dates, get answers to procedural questions, and/or have child support calculated.  Each appointment is 40 minutes. Appointments must be paid for and scheduled in advance through the Kitsap County Clerk’s Office.  To schedule an appointment, call 360-337-7260, or click HERE to request an appointment online. 

Prepare for your appointment by filling out the forms you want to review with a facilitator. The facilitator will review the documents with you and let you know if they are filled out properly. The facilitators cannot give you substantive legal advice, only procedural advice. The facilitators cannot act as your attorney.

On the day of your appointment, bring copies of any existing court documents with you and any new forms that you have filled out. If you need a facilitator to calculate child support, also bring a completed Child Support Data Form* or proof of income for both parties with you.

If you need assistance in finding forms, please click here.

*Note:  The Child Support Data Form is only available through the Kitsap County Clerk's Office or website.

WALK-IN VISITS - Fee:  $25.00 (cash or money order only)

       ·      Walk-in visitors will be seen on Tuesday mornings and Thursday mornings only. 

       ·      Walk-in visits are limited in length (25 minutes) and in number (a maximum of 5 walk-in visits will be available each Tuesday and Thursday morning, depending on Facilitator availability).

       ·      Walk-in visits are only sold for same-day use on a first-come, first-served basis.

The fee for each walk-in visit is $25.00 cash or money order only.  A reduced fee is not available for walk-in visits.  The $25.00 fee must be paid in person at the Clerk’s Office, where your walk-in time will be determined.  Walk-in visits cannot be rescheduled, and the fee will not be refunded if you cancel or fail to appear for your walk-in visit.

On the day of your appointment, bring copies of any existing court documents with you and any new forms that you have filled out. If you need a facilitator to calculate child support, also bring a completed Child Support Data Form* or proof of income for both parties with you.
