LIFT’s purple tables are stocked with resources and staffed by attorneys. There is no appointment required and you can receive immediate assistance from our friendly, knowledgeable staff. Get your questions answered, get directions to where you need to go, and learn about courthouse procedures. We're there from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Again, there is no appointment required, but if you’d like to schedule one, please call 212-343-1122.

Going to Court today? Be prepared with some basic tips from LIFT:

  1. Plan to arrive early. On busy days, the security line can take up to an hour.
  2. Bring a pen, paper, and a calendar or appointment book.
  3. Bring a book or other activities to do while you and your children wait, or stop by LIFT's table for resource guides and activity books for children.
  4. When you begin a case, the Court will ask for your government-issued ID and other paperwork. The more you have with you, the better. Use this chart to see what to bring.
