Family Court is the division of the District Court in Anoka County which deals with cases involving families, for example, marriage dissolution (divorce), domestic abuse actions, harassment actions, child custody / support matters, and paternity cases. In some of these actions (like domestic abuse matters), Court Administration staff may provide forms and clerical assistance. Court staff cannot provide legal assistance or give legal advice. If an individual chooses to be self-represented, that individual will have the same responsibility as an attorney to follow court rules and procedures to move the case forward.
