Lawsuit Forms For Representing Yourself In Court
Filing A Civil Complaint
Everyone wants to avoid a lawsuit, but sometimes we are forced to get involved in the civil court system, whether we can afford an attorney or not.
With access to free legal services being woefully inadequate, many people have no choice but to represent themselves in court. Fortunately, this is not nearly as difficult as you may think. Our forms, templates, and guides will help you file a civil lawsuit on your own!
What Forms Do I Need To File A Civil Lawsuit?
Any lawsuit begins with filing a civil complaint (called a 'petition' in Texas). Before serving the complaint, a summons will also need to be filled out and served on the defendant. Some states will have summons forms available at the courthouse, while others may require you to write your own.
If your lawsuit forms are not formatted correctly, they may be rejected by the court clerk! Lawsuitforms.org is the only website that offers state-specific form templates for filing a civil lawsuit. Most other websites sell overpriced, poor quality, generic forms that are NOT in compliance with state court rules.
After filing a complaint, the defendant will need to file an answer, at which point both sides will engage in 'discovery', and obtain all the evidence they need to prove any claim or defense. After discovery, a trial will be held unless a mutually agreed upon settlement is reached.
Our lawsuit forms and guides provide a comprehensive and easy to understand overview of the civil court process. While it is impossible to cover every aspect of any specific lawsuit, our products will allow you to plead your case, obtain evidence, and competently represent yourself in court.
