NOTE: When the computer program creates your form you may need to adjust the size or "zoom" of the document to make sure the format is correct and to be sure that you can see the signature lines. Read your form carefully when you get it from the computer. Look to see if your form has areas where you need to circle a choice, check a checkbox, or fill in other information, such as a Social Security Number. Check forms for places where it must be signed, dated, or notarized, or where a court case number or other information must be written in.
