9:00am to 10:15am
A patron walks up to the information desk and asks, “Can you please give me the form to file a motion to have my court case reconsidered?” or… “My ex-wife got a new job with more money. What form do I file to get my alimony changed?” or even… “My neighbor is driving me nuts with his loud music. Someone told me I can complain for quiet enjoyment, but what form should I use to do that?” Do you get these kinds of questions? Are you confused about what to tell your patrons and what information to give them? Because legal filings in Maryland often do not have a specific form that you can easily hand out, you may need more information on just what sources to offer to your patrons. And while the Maryland courts specify format in the Maryland Rules, constructing the actual filing is up to the party in the case. So just what is the best way to serve your library patrons in need? Come to our session and get some answers!
