Illinois Court Help
Illinois Court Help was launched in order to connect people to the resources and information they need to go to court in Illinois. It is the first personalized court information service offered by the Illinois Courts and one of the latest innovations created during the COVID-19 pandemic to make the courts and information more accessible. People can call or text 833-411-1121 to connect with a trained court guide who can provide current Illinois court information and answers to specific questions about the court process. Illinois Court Help guides will provide step-by-step instructions on how to file court documents and explain how to appear in court on Zoom. The new service will not provide legal advice but allows for guides to connect people to legal aid and other community services. This service builds on other innovative changes instituted in response to COVID-19 to improve people’s access to the court system. More information on Illinois Court Help can be found by going to www.ilcourthelp.gov.
