Consequently, it can be a pricey venture if you need help creating a will, affidavit or some other legal form.
Wouldn’t it be great if someone set up a database with different legal-form templates that people could view or even download for free?
Someone (or, rather, someones) did. It’s called the Legal Forms Library, and it’s one of the dozens of databases that Mentor Library offers access to for free.
There are thousands of form templates for all types of topics: divorce, bankruptcy, power of attorney, name changes, wills, estates and more. (So you know, you’ll need to click through to the Legal Forms Library from the Mentor Library site for these hyperlinks to work.) And you can view, download or edit all these templates for free. There are also completed samples that you can view as a PDF or Microsoft Word file. This can give you an idea what your finished form should look like.
There are also legal definitions and explanations for each form, so you can understand what you’re reading.
The forms available on the Legal Forms Library include forms drafted by attorneys for a particular legal matter, forms from public records and participating companies and attorneys. “Official” forms for many states are included, as well.
For more information, you can visit the FAQ section of the Legal Forms website.
