Free Legal Forms
Kansas Legal Services provides forms as a service to low income Kansans to assist overburdened Kansas courts. Forms are easy to use, interactive forms that will produce documents necessary for filing or responding to legal actions in Kansas district courts.
Please note, it is always advisable to talk to a lawyer before proceeding in a court case on your own. Please read our important warning.
If you have questions about how to complete the forms when using the interactive interview, you can use our LIVE HELP option. You will return to this page (but leave the interview open if you can). Look for the LIVE HELP button on the top right of this page. Just click on this:
LIVE HELP is generally available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can leave a message if LIVE HELP is not available. You will receive a reply by email within two business days.
In order to use this program to make free legal documents, you will need the following software on your computer:
Adobe Flash player: This is very standard software that you can download free. Click here to download. If you aren't sure if you have it already, try to download it. The program will let you know if you have the software already.
What Software is Needed to Download and Print the Forms?
The interactive court forms download for printing in Rich Text Format (.rtf), which can be opened only in Microsoft Word. Make sure when downloading the documents your computer chooses that program to download the documents. Otherwise you will likely experience formatting or other errors such as getting nonsense or "gibberish" rather than a document. Note: Microsoft WordPad is NOT the same as Microsoft Word. Using WordPad WILL cause problems with your documents.
If you do not have Microsoft Word, you can download Microsoft Word Viewer for free from Microsoft.com.
NOTE TO USERS OF CHROME and FIREFOX: The backspace button does not work to delete or modify answers in these interactive interviews. You must use arrows or your mouse to highlight the information you need to change. Then use the delete key to remove letters, before you can change information. This problem is not experienced in Explorer.

The Kansas Judicial Council has the statutory authority to prescribe many of the forms used in legal proceedings in Kansas district courts. The Council initiates projects which are assigned by the Legislature and requested by the Supreme Court. One of those projects is the provision of free legal forms.
The Kansas Judicial Branch is the branch of government that oversees the courts. It relies on the Kansas Judicial Council to prescribe and provide most of the forms available, but it also provides a handful of forms that the Council does not.
For more information about self-representation, please visit the Kansas Judicial Branch self-help website. Legal forms are available from other Kansas resources, as well. To see a list of forms with website locations:
These forms are not for commercial use and charging for use of the forms in any way is prohibited.
