Do-It-Yourself Legalese

Some simple court forms now available online

Trying to get that name changed? Hoping to make the break from your spouse? Got a landlord-tenant beef? Getting into the Idaho courts system just got a wee bit easier. Idaho Legal Aid Services, in partnership with the Idaho Judiciary, are providing online access to many court-approved legal forms to allow people to represent themselves in civil and family court cases. Just go to and follow the links to get the forms. Staff for Idaho Legal Aid expect to see about 25,000 Idahoans use the online forms during the first year of the project.
