Resources

To prepare for your volunteer service and learn what to expect in the Civil Court or the Housing Court, you are encouraged to learn more about the Housing Court's Resolution Part and watch a video about what happens there. Visit the Civil Court's General Information webpage for further information.

You can also visit the links on the website’s Representing Yourself page to learn about the resources available to unrepresented litigants.

Remember, as a Court Navigator, you are not permitted to give legal advice or become involved in any negotiations or settlement conferences.

Volunteers can split their time during regular business hours Monday - Friday except between 1 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. when the court is in recess. To schedule volunteer service, contact courtnavigator@nycourts.gov and provide your courthouse preference, and the dates and hours that you are available to volunteer in the Program.
