WORD PROCESSING PROGRAM:

  • The interactive court forms download for printing in Rich Text Format (.rtf), which can be opened in any word processing program, such as Microsoft Word.

  • Make sure your computer chooses a word processing program to download the documents or you may get errors or "gibberish."  

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.
