to the 17th Judicial District Court Online Self-Help Center

This website only provides legal information to self-represented litigants. This site does NOT provide legal advice about your specific case.  It is always recommended that you seek professional representation if possible. To find an attorney and additional resources in your area, please click here.


If you need to represent yourself, this website can assist you by outlining relevant laws, procedures, and resources. For certain issues, forms are available that you can fill out on your computer and then file with the Clerk of Court. This service in no way constitutes legal representation and is brought to you as a courtesy through the combined efforts of the 17th Judicial District Court and the Louisiana State Bar Association. 


The information on this website is provided as a courtesy by the Louisiana State Bar Association and the 17th Judicial District Court, Parish of Lafourche.

It is located on the first floor of the Old Courthouse, 201 Green Street, Thibodaux, LA 70301.
