Self-Help Forms and Resources

Self-Help Forms and Resources are provided by the Maricopa County Superior Court Law Library Resource Center, to help individuals help themselves in Court. This website provides legal information, forms, services and procedural information for self-represented litigants in order to increase understanding, access to the justice system, and more effective participation in court processes.

About Forms

The Law Library Resource Center has hundreds of legal forms available in English and Spanish. All the forms you need for a particular process are grouped in packets and contain detailed instructions that explain how many copies you need to make, where to take the forms, and the necessary steps. Individual forms are also available if you are looking for a specific form rather than an entire packet of forms and instructions. All forms are in fillable format. Some family court forms are also available through ezCourtForms, a quick and easy user-friendly interactive computer software program.

Getting Forms and Instructions

There are several different ways to get the forms you need:
  • Some family court forms are available through ezCourtForms, a quick and easy user-friendly interactive computer software program. This program is accessible 7 days a week, 24 hours a day from this website. Computers are available in the Law Library Resource Centers. Using the program is free and printing is just .20 cents per page.
  • Download and complete the fillable forms online 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Downloading is free but there is a printing fee if you use a public computer.
  • Purchase forms from the Law Library Resource Center at the Phoenix, Northeast, Northwest and Mesa Superior Court Locations.
Please note: Domestic violence forms are not available online. You must come to one of the Protective Order Center locations for this paperwork.

Filing Forms

Your completed papers must be filed at one of the Superior Court locations. There is usually a fee to file papers with the court, but it can be deferred or waived if you qualify. Before filing documents with the Court, consult with an attorney to help guard against undesired and unexpected consequences. Please see the Clerk of Court website for more information about filing your papers.
