Legal Topics: Forms

The Library does not have copies of forms that can be filled out. Within the legal community a form does not necessarily mean a fill-in-the-blank form; often it can mean a stylized sheet or a set of instructions. There are hundreds of forms out there (including variations.) Forms are not one-size-fits-all; they need to be adapted to the particular situation. As librarians and not attorneys we are not in a position to tell you what form to use.

Resources:

  • Court Forms, from the Minnesota Judicial Branch.
  • Form Finder, from the Minnesota State Law Library.
  • FormHelper: Do-It-Yourself Legal Forms, from LawHelpMN.org.
  • Forms, resources from the Self-Help Center. Includes the new Court Forms Review Service, which lets you get a review of your completed form by Self-Help Center staff before you print it out.
  • Minnesota court rules appendices of forms.
  • Miller Davis Company is a commercial publisher of printed legal forms in Minnesota.


    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 finding an attorney click here.
