Legal forms and reference sources related to family law matters are the most commonly requested items in our collection. Self-represented litigants often ask for help in locating do-it-yourself forms for divorce and child custody arrangements, while practitioners often seek information about the latest legislative changes or the most recent appeals court decisions focused on important family law issues. Fortunately, the Harris County Law Library has a wealth of family law resources including those suggested on our Family Law Research Guide. Our research guide recommends both primary and secondary sources, including annotated family law statutes and a variety of practice essentials, such as legal form books and CLE course materials.
Online resources are also plentiful thanks to the user-friendly, self-help website TexasLawHelp.org. On this website, self-represented litigants will find an abundance of useful information from how-to videos and FAQs to legal forms, with detailed instructions, on a wide variety of topics within the area of family law -- divorce, child custody, visitation, protective orders, name changes, and more.
