Legal Forms

Introduction

Practicing lawyers often refer to templates or "forms" when drafting standard legal documents. 

When using a form, it is important to review all relevant laws and rules.  Forms are not etched in stone and should be tailored to your specific case.

You will often find many variations of the same form.  It is best to consult several forms, taking particular aspects from each, when creating your legal document.
