Kane County Law Library and Self Help Legal Center has shifted from in-person to remote help due to rising numbers in pandemic.
Pursuant to Chief Judge Clint Hull’s General Order 20-30 for the 16th Judicial Circuit, the Kane County Law Library and Self Help Legal Center made the shift from being physically open to offering remote-only services on Nov. 30.
The Law Library will reopen to in-person service again on Feb. 1, 2021.
Kane County Law Library Director Halle Cox said staff will continue to help patrons by phone, email, social media, and a new chat service the library has made available on its website. The chat is available during normal business hours.
“People can still ask us for help in how to attend Zoom court, how to start a legal case, how to find basic legal forms, how to look for an attorney, how to e-file and any other topic,” she said.
The Law Library will continue to offer the popular and free call-in Divorce and Family Law Help service every Thursday.
Kane County court-goers who are representing themselves in a family case can call the library at 630-406-7126 from 11 a.m. to noon Thursday and speak to a volunteering attorney who will help them with questions on divorce, custody, parenting time or child support.
To find additional information about any of these services or the Law Library’s hours, search the website at kclawlibrary.org under the ABOUT tab or use the chat/email box on the website.
