Medina County Legal Resource Center

The program, which was launched in 2006, is a way for self-represented individuals in legal situations to access legal forms, books and other resources to guide them through the process. Represent you? In 2006, the court created the Legal Resource Centre, a place where self-represented individuals can access legal forms, books and other legal resources to guide you through the legal process. The Clerk of the Family Relations Office cannot provide legal advice, but we do offer selected forms for filing. We encourage you to contact a lawyer for legal advice and representation, but you can also file an application on your behalf as a Pro Se litigator. Additional forms and information are available at: NOTE: The Court cannot and will not provide legal advice. If volunteer lawyers cannot answer your question, you should seek the advice of a licensed lawyer. The Ohio Justice Bus partners with OhioKAN to provide free legal advice to residents of Medina County. You will have the opportunity to speak privately with a lawyer about family law issues related to adoption and kinship care. Appointments can be made by emailing Scott Newman in the snewman@medinaco.org, and appointments are prioritized in the order in which emails are received as space is limited. Filing fees for petitions/complaints/applications can be found in the fee schedule of the court registry. All fees paid at the time of the initial submission are considered a security deposit and additional fees may apply, which will be charged at the end of your file.

If you are experiencing financial difficulties with these fees, a payment plan can be agreed upon when you submit your document with a small deposit. We accept document submissions Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding payments. All payments must be made by 4:15 p.m. on each open house to allow for end-of-day payment processing. Please note that the Legal Resource Centre has been temporarily suspended. If you purchase a product or create an account through one of the links on our website, we may receive compensation.
