Information and Instructions
What is this program?

  • This program uses interviews to collect information about you to create court forms and letters.
  • Oklahoma does not have many "official" court forms, but some forms are set out by law.
     

How does this work?

  • When you click on the link to start an interview, you will be taken to a new web site that will ask you to accept the terms of use.
  • Not all fields are required, but those that are required are in red, and you should answer as much information as you can.
  • When you are finished, you will get an electronic file of the forms with the information you provided. This file can be opened using Microsoft Word or other word processors. You can save this electronic copy and type in more information later, or print and add information by hand or email the form.
  • This program does not file these forms with any court for you; it only auotmates the forms for you to read, edit and file with the court or mail the letters to the recipient.

 

Can I save my answers in case I need to get more information or continue working on this later?

  • Before you begin the interview, you will be given the chance to create an account to save your progress and answers. Click on the "Sign Up to Save Your Work" button before you begin. You should do this if you don’t think you’ll have enough time to finish the interview, or if you aren’t sure you have all the paperwork or information you will need.
  • If you do not create an account and save your work, you will have to start from the beginning if you find an error or want to come back later.
  • Your saved answers are kept private. You can use your saved answers to fill in more than one form to save you time. If you save your answers, you can delete them once you have all the forms you need.
  • If you cannot print from the computer you are working on, you can save your answers and log in on another computer so you do not need to start from the beginning.  At the end of the interview, you maychose to email your document.
  • When you return to the interview and load your saved answers, you can jump back to any point of the interview.
