The key to finding free legal forms online is understanding the fact that most of these sites say they do not cost anything but once you look closer you realize, there are only a certain amount of no cost documents.
If you are lucky you may stumble across the exact product you need without having to pay for it. But if you are like most people, a small amount of money is going to have to be spent for quality sake. Here are some of the best “free” websites to find your document.
FindForms.com has a well designed list of categories directly on their homepage so you will not have to waste time searching around a cluttered site. Like most websites of this nature, there are just as many free legal forms as those you actually have to pull out your credit card for. Their contract law category is particularly extensive and impressive, covering various jurisdictions and states throughout the country.
FreeLegalForms.net is another site with a clean, simple design. Front and center on their homepage, you can input your search term for the exact type of document you need in the search box to look through their database. If you do not know the exact name of the form, you can choose to dig deeper with their easy to use, left navigation bar.
FormsGuru.com has a directory type of look and feel which can be overwhelming to some as literally everything is listed on the homepage. But there is also the option of using the “popular searches” section or typing in your own search term to narrow down your selection without having to scroll through the whole huge list. This site decided to either put a dollar sign or not next to each link to let you know which requires payment which is a convenient feature.
Last but not least, LegalForms.name is not the prettiest site but it actually boasts all free law forms available to anyone. The only catch is you may or may not find the product you need which is valid in your state, depending on the type of document you are looking for.
Regardless of which type of form that is needed for your situation, it is best to conduct some legal research to make sure you are receiving the appropriate document to be filed. Take advantage of free legal answer sites such as FindLaw.com, JustAnswer.com or LawGuru.com to find a lawyer’s answers to legal questions especially if you are having to pay for the form you need.
