Virtual Court Navigator Pilot Program

logo

Starting June 6, 2022, the Virtual Court Navigator Pilot Program will begin scheduling appointments for unrepresented court users. It is a free program, designed to help people who either have or would like to start a court case in: Albany, Columbia, Rensselaer, Ulster, Broome, Tompkins, and Chemung Counties as well as Erie County Surrogate’s Court.

Virtual Court Navigators are specially trained, supervised, and available to help court users prepare for court appearances, find court forms, get answers to general questions, find community programs and services, refer people to legal service providers, navigate the court’s website, and more. Virtual Court Navigators are not attorneys and cannot provide legal advice.

To schedule a time to meet with a virtual court navigator, complete the online intake form.
