Mission Statement

The Lycoming County Law Library is dedicated to providing comprehensive and current resources and information to pro se litigants*, professionals, County offices, community groups, and students. A goal of the law library is to bridge the gap between pro se litigants, North Penn Legal Services, the Lycoming Law Association, and local attorneys by creating a central location to access current Lycoming County Court forms and by serving as a clearinghouse for relevant community resources and referrals. The law library is committed to meeting the needs of the community and providing assistance in navigating the various resources available to the members of our community.

*“Pro se litigants” are individuals who are representing themselves in a legal proceeding.



Domestice Relations Office Notice

Pursuant to Pa Rule of Civil Procedure 1910.4, effective January 1, 2019 the filing office for all pleadings and documents in Child Support, Spousal Support and Alimony Pendente Lite actions will be at the Domestic Relations Office (DRO). The Prothonotary will no longer accept these fillings.   There will also no longer be a filing fee for the commencement of an action or a modification.  The Domestic Relations Office is currently located on the 3rd floor of the courthouse.  The office will be moving to the 4th floor in early 2019.  If you need access to a DRO file, you may request access by contacting one of the following individuals from DRO:

As is the case with the Prothonotary, you will be required to fill out a form regarding your request for information.

Disclaimer
*“Pro se litigants” are individuals who are representing themselves in a legal proceeding.
The Lycoming County Law Library has organized materials and resources for individuals who choose to represent themselves in a legal matter. Individuals who represent themselves in court proceedings are referred to as “pro se,” which in Latin means “for self.” The information provided online and in the law library may not be appropriate for your situation. The law library does not provide legal advice and should not be substituted for legal advice. If you have legal questions, you should contact a lawyer. Pro se litigants are held to the same standards as attorneys admitted to the bar of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Representing yourself does not exempt you from understanding and following state-wide and local rules of court.
