If you’re representing yourself in a court matter or have questions on legal issues such as estate planning, family law, landlord-tenant issues or sealing records, or you just need a little help navigating court processes, you may find answers in one of the free Legal Resource Days events coming up this month.

With sponsorship by the Colorado Judicial Institute, 11 judicial districts around Colorado are offering in-person and videoconference or teleconference sessions covering a variety of court-related topics.

The Judicial Department is committed to providing self-represented litigants the information and education they need to be prepared to appear before a judge, and Legal Resource Days are one way the department provides that assistance. 

Volunteer lawyers and others will teach sessions either in-person or virtually in the 6th Judicial District (Archuleta, La Plata and San Juan counties): Virtual and in-person events, Oct. 29, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., La Plata Combined Courts, 1060 E. 2nd Ave. in Durango.

Times and types of sessions vary by location. Spanish interpreters will be available. Information on specific sessions for each of the participating districts is available at: Registration is required for some sessions; please see each location’s Web page for registration information.

Sessions include:

• Estate planning.

• Courtroom procedures.

• Ask-an-attorney opportunities.

• Collections.

• Record sealing.

• Guardianship and conservatorship.

• Landlord-tenant issues.

• Mediation services.

• Parenting classes.
