Legal Practice Forms

The New Jersey Judiciary prepared these materials for attorneys practicing law in the State of New Jersey. If you are not an attorney and you are planning to represent yourself in your legal matter, you should visit the NJ Courts Self-Help Resource Center, which offers general information about representing yourself in court, what the court can and cannot do for you, contact information, brochures, forms and kits.

Please note that because these forms were created for lawyers, they do not include instructions. Further, although the forms are intended for use by attorneys, self-represented litigants are permitted to use them, where appropriate.

If you have a problem accessing a form or publication, please check our forms help page. If you continue to have problems please contact the Webmaster.

The New Jersey Judiciary is providing free copies of active case records that were lost or damaged due to Hurricane Sandy. To request files, please fill out the Active Case File Recovery Assistance Emergent Hurricane Sandy Request form
