Legal Forms

Non-lawyers should be extremely careful when using legal forms found on the Internet. Such forms may provide a general idea of the format and content needed for a certain legal document; however, the requirements for making the document valid and enforceable can and do vary greatly from state to state. Many legal documents require drafting by an attorney licensed in the relevant state who can make the modifications necessary for the specific location and circumstances.

As listed below, however, most states provide state-approved forms relating to common legal issues handled in the state court system, such as family law matters, probate and small claims. In certain cases, these forms may enable the handling of simple legal matters in court without the assistance of an attorney; however, it is always recommended that you consult an attorney in any matter that requires an appearance in a court of law.
