When should I consider talking to an attorney?
The materials and assistance you receive on this web site or in your local Court Assistance Office are no substitute for talking with a lawyer. Laws and court rules are very complex. Consequently, keep in mind, even if you follow the instructions provided and use our forms you are not guaranteed to win your case.
The materials on this site are meant to help you educate yourself through the process. It is always advisable to talk to a lawyer before proceeding on your own, especially if your situation is complicated or you expect difficulties. Visit the Idaho State Bar Lawyer Referral Service to find a lawyer.
