The Help Desk is open every Wednesday from 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-4:00pm and is located on the first floor of the Court Center.

Disclaimer: The Juvenile Court Help Desk is a service funded by the Summit County Juvenile Court. The assistance is being provided by private attorneys who are not employees of the Juvenile Court. The Help Desk is established for the purpose of providing assistance in filling out forms and perfecting service. The person seeking Help Desk assistance will file their paperwork as a pro se litigant. The attorney providing assistance will not make Court appearances or file any documents on behalf of persons seeking Help Desk assistance. The Help Desk cannot provide assistance to persons who have already retained counsel or who have counsel appointed to them by the Court. If you need assistance beyond filling out forms or obtaining service and need help finding an attorney, you can call the Lawyer Referral Service at the Akron Bar Association.
