Legal Forms: Home


Practicing lawyers often require sample versions of standard legal documents known as model forms or legal forms. These model instruments offer suggested terminology and other essential details required in formal legal documents.

This guide distinguishes between legal forms and pleading and practice forms. This guide primarily provides resources for the former. Legal forms address substantive matters, such as forms for contracts, wills, leases, etc. Pleading and practice forms provide language used in pleadings and motions filed with a court in litigation and supply language for complaints, answers, and motions.
