Online Printable Legal Forms?

Is there a good reliable website that provides free printable legal forms?

I am a public librarian and we have the reference books with legal forms that our users can photocopy but sometimes they just gotta use the internet and I have yet to find a good reliable site for this. For a while I had a link to a register of deeds in a county in North Carolina that had a few but they are gone now.

Nolo press isn't free, but does have downloadable forms. I haven't used them, but I've heard good reviews from people who have.

Many states have free forms online through their court system websites. For example, here are the relevant pages for Oklahoma, Texas, and North Carolina.

Yep, not just states but counties as well.

California has them. Many of them are fillable forms--you can type in on-screen to fill in the forms before printing them out.

You need a pdf form-filler program like 'cutepdf' (there's a freeware version) in order to do this.

Here's a good collection, both federal and state forms are available. In the "select type" field, tell you patrons to choose "Forms." For the most part, these will be state court approved "pro se" form packets, similar those available here in my state, Iowa (forms listed in left column). has been around a while and is a good reference source for all things legal library-related, IMHO.

Fixed link to California forms.

Response by poster: I should have been more specific. The most frequently requested legal form is the power of attorney form. Court forms are rarely asked for.
