DIY Forms

English | Español

These computer programs ask you questions. The program then uses your answers to make a form for your case or to make an information sheet to help you in court. These programs are not e-fileable. Your paper must be printed, then filed at the Court.

NYS DIY Forms are only for court users who don't have a lawyer and legal services and pro bono attorneys and staff helping clients who cannot afford lawyers.
