Maryland District Court Self Help Center Offers Remote Access

The Maryland Judiciary’s recent press release announced that the Maryland District Court Self Help Center now offers remote access via Live Chat and  phone.  Until now, the Center’s services were limited to walk-ins only at the Glen Burnie District Court at 7500 Ritchie Highway.  It was great for us that the first and only District Court Self Help center was located in Anne Arundel County.  The law library has been making referrals to the center since it opened two years ago.  However, the location sometimes proved a problem for some of those we referred there.  Already we were able to refer a caller from Virginia to the Live Chat for assistance with a Maryland District Court case. The phone service will make it even easier.  Based on the many phone calls we get related to the district court such as landlord/tenant, debt collections ans small claims I  know that this service is needed and will be appreciated.
