WWW Forms that are available as HTML pages can be opened in your Browser.  You can print the pages directly from the Web immediately or save them to your hard drive for later use. You can also copy/paste the form language, or parts of it, to your word processor for editing.

Forms that are available in MS Word format can be downloaded and opened in Word or in certain other word processor programs.  To open a Word file, click on "Word" or on the icon next to the form title.   After the file has opened, you can save the file to your hard drive or simply edit it as needed and print it without saving.  Opening a Word file allows you to make any changes you wish before printing.

Forms that are available in Portable Document Format ( PDF) can be downloaded and opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader and printed in it's original formatting .  Adobe Acrobat Reader is a program that is usually included on new computers and can be downloaded free from Adobe .  To open an Acrobat file click the name or the icon next to the form title .  After the file has opened, you can save the file to your hard drive or simply print it without saving.  Acrobat files cannot be edited unless you have the full version of Acrobat (not free).

Note that some forms are available only as Acrobat files because the original file was created in a spreadsheet or other program that is not expected to be available on the average member's computer.

Many government Web sites (e.g., the IRS and Courts in many jurisdictions) make their forms available in PDF format.  Adobe now allows creation of PDF forms that can be filled in right on the computer screen and then saved and/or printed.  In addition to providing better looking forms of all types, this is a particular advantage for Court forms because many judges want all the information typed and few of us have convenient access to typewriters any longer.  You will find an * next to the names of those that are "fillable."

For more detailed information about using the forms and agreements and the various file formats, visit our Using Forms & Agreements page.

NOTICE: Court forms are different from state to state, and sometimes from county to county. You may get farther with court clerks and judges if you use the forms they provide and want you to use. The less hassle you cause them the more helpful they're likely to be to you.

Select the first letter of the name of the form you are looking for from the list below to jump to appropriate section of the form list. If the name of the form you are looking for starts with a digit or symbol, choose the '#' link.
