York County Self-Help Center

Welcome to the York County Court Self-Help Center, a resource for individuals who are representing themselves in civil litigation. The Center provides assistance and information on legal procedure and issues. 

The York County Self-Help Center was established and is operated and funded by the Administrative Office of York County Courts (AOYCC). The York County Bar Foundation and State Justice Institute provided $10,000 matching grant funds for the establishment of the Self-Help Center.

Representing yourself in Court is difficult and a challenging process. It is strongly suggested that you consult an attorney. Visit the York Bar Association’s website by clicking here or call Attorney Connections at (717) 854- 8755 to schedule an initial consultation with an attorney. 

No one in the Court Self-Help Center is allowed to give legal advice.

Warning: Self-represented litigants are held to the same standards as attorneys admitted to the bar of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Representing yourself does not exempt you from understanding and following statewide and local Rules of Court.

The Self-Help Center is on the first floor of the York County Judicial Center, 45 N. George Street in York City. It is located directly to the left after passing through security at the main doors. 

New hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. -12:30 p.m., and 1:30 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. & Fridays 9:00 A.M. to NOON.

Attention: No cell phones, pagers, weapons or cameras are permitted in the York County Judicial Center. Please click here for a full list of prohibited items.
