ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

As a party to a Domestic Relations case, you may choose to represent yourself.  When you act as your own attorney, you are responsible to know and follow Court rules and procedures.  Domestic Relations cases are lawsuits, and concern many complicated issues such as child support and placement, property division, retirement benefits, spousal maintenance (alimony) and debts.  If you need legal advice regarding your lawsuit, you should see an attorney. 

The staff of the Kitsap County Clerk’s Office cannot refer you to a specific attorney.  To find an attorney, ask a friend or family member for a referral, use the yellow pages, and/or use some of the resources included here.
