Resources for Self-Represented Litigants: Online Forms

This guide offers helpful information to Louisiana self-represented litigants (people who represent themselves in court without an attorney) including help finding legal information, resources, and referrals.

Forms

Online forms provided by a variety of courts, government agencies, and legal aid. Please note that not all forms are approved for all courts or agencies. In particular, we advise users to proceed cautiously when using Gale legal forms-- these forms are often useful templates but because every Louisiana court is different, Gale can't guarantee that the format of their forms is what your court requires. If you have any questions about the Gale forms, ask your librarian for help. You may also find some court forms available on the website of the court in which you are seeking to file - you can search the internet for the court's website or call the library for help. If you can't find the information you are looking for or need more help, please check out Referral Resources.

The Legal Education and Assistance Program (LEAP), a partnership between the Louisiana State Bar Association, the Law Library of Louisiana, the Louisiana Library Association, and the LSU Law Library, also provides referral and form information, by parish. Check their website for more information. 

*This resource guide is updated frequently. However, if you notice something is wrong or not working, or any resources that should be added, please notify the editor at svpic@lasc.org. Thanks!
