Searching

Users can find and retrieve, download, fill out, save or print the most up-to-date legal forms using two search queries:

Keyword Search By Category

Click on the Category button. Users simply enter a keyword or phrase and hit "enter." Within each category are specific titles of the forms, for example: POWER OF ATTORNEY – DISABILITY. Users can scroll through these results and when the desired form is located, click on the form title, then click on the desired format and that form will open in a new window.

Keyword Search By Title

A Title search searches the forms' title description for a word or combination of words. Click on the Title. Users enter a search term or phrase and results matching the search criteria are returned.

Search Results

All forms are officially approved and/or drafted by attorneys. In fact, many lawyers and law offices use the forms found in Gale LegalForms in their practices. Forms approved for all states begin with the suffix US, while state-specific forms begin with that state's abbreviation. Once the user finds the desired form, it can be previewed to ensure it is the correct form, then opened in any of the available formats. The form can be filled out and saved on the computer for later use or printing.
