Gale Legal Forms

What is it?

Provides a wide selection of state-specific (and multi-state) legal forms across the most popular legal areas.  Includes real estate contracts, wills, pre-marital agreements, bankruptcy, divorce, landlord tenant and many others. Also included is a comprehensive attorney state directory and a dictionary of legal definitions explained in laymen’s language.  These forms are “attorney forms” — officially approved forms actually used at a typical law firm.  Many of the forms and documents are available in Word or Adobe format and can be edited and used with minor modifications to suit users’ needs by simply “filling in the blanks” with relevant and accurate information.  Completed sample forms are also included.
