Filing legal forms can cost a lot of money, but Chesterfield County Public Library can help. CCPL offers legal forms for free through GALE LegalForms.  Included are official, state specific, federal, business, personal, and real estate forms. Gale LegalForms also offers a dictionary of legal terms and a place where you can ask questions. The forms are also offered in Spanish.  

To access the legal forms, visit the News, Legal and Finance Research Databases page. Look for “LegalForms” and it will direct you to the Gale LegalForms website. You can download as many forms as you need, as many times as you need them. The forms have been drafted by attorneys who specialize in specific areas of legal practice and are available in Word, PDF and rich text format. 

Among the most popular legal forms that you can download are:  

  • Divorce 
  • Wills and Estates

Gales Legal Form’s website is easy to explore, and the forms are organized by categories to make your search easier. The site also offers a dictionary of legal terms which is also easy to use. Enter your search term in the search bar or click one of the terms in the topic list to get a better understanding of the forms you are filling out. 

If you need more legal help, Gale LegalForms also offers a list of practicing attorneys. Click on the state and the area of practice. It also offers a Q&A where you might find the answers to the legal questions you still have.   

Visit our News, Legal and Finance Research Databases page to obtain access the legal forms that you need!
