A new help center opened in Mesa County’s courthouse this summer. It’s part of a statewide push to assist residents who want to represent themselves in civil cases, or just need information about how to start working on things like a divorce, restraining order, or property dispute.  CPR's Anna Hanel spoke with Velvet Johnson, the Self-Represented Litigant Coordinator at the Mesa County Combined Court.
