Family Forms Clinic
Masks are required to be worn in the Clinic at all times. Only the person seeking assistance is allowed in the Clinic space. Please do not bring children.
Please call (813) 864-2280 Option #2 for this week's hours. Space is limited. Clinics may be canceled on short notice.
The Family Forms Clinic is a free program to provide forms assistance to people representing themselves in family law cases in Hillsborough County.
Family law cases include divorce and equitable distribution, paternity, timesharing, parental responsibility, custody, child support, alimony, adoption, and name change cases. It does NOT include cases like guardianship, probate, foreclosures, criminal, or any appeals. We cannot assist you with any cases that are not family law or any out of county or out of state cases.
The Family Forms Clinic volunteers are only permitted to assist with the pro se Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Forms. Volunteers cannot provide you with legal advice and cannot represent you in court. Volunteers will not assist with financial affidavits, marital settlement agreements, child support guideline worksheets, or parenting plans. Volunteers may give you information about the process to file your case. All pro se litigants must file all their forms on their own with the appropriate office.

- Any packet/forms you need assistance completing.
- Hillsborough County case number (should include “DR”).
- Any previous orders entered in the case.
- Any documents you've been served.
- Any documents relating to the family law case.
If you do not know what packet/forms you need, please register with the Legal Information Center for assistance. The Family Forms Clinic cannot tell you which packet/forms you need or provide any packet/forms to you. You must have the packets/forms you need assistance with when you arrive. You can purchase the packet/forms you need in the Court Business Center on the 6th floor of the George Edgecomb Courthouse or download them for free online.
The Clinic operates on a "first-come, first-served" basis, and there is no guarantee everyone who signs up will be able to meet with a volunteer. It is best to come early as space is very limited. Because volunteers staff the Clinic, they may have to end your session if they have to leave at the closing time or earlier. Clinic hours are subject to change based on volunteer availability. Please call the Family Forms Clinic Information Line, (813) 864-2280 Option #2, the day you plan to come to verify the walk-in hours for that day.
