DISCLAIMER: As librarians and not lawyers, we can suggest
resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file), or legal
opinions, (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts.) To
do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law. Even though
we try to suggest materials that will be of help, further research is usually
required to find a complete and correct answer. For many questions, the
best answer may be to consult an attorney. For links to resources on
