The websites below can help you find legal information and court forms to help you understand and advocate for your own rights.

Warning: These programs do not provide legal advice. They do not take the place of legal advice from competent legal counsel licensed in your state who knows about your legal issue. Try to find help from a lawyer if you can.

In partnership with the Louisiana Library Association, the Louisiana State Bar Association, and the Louisiana Supreme Court Library, SLLS has created and released free online legal forms hosted by LawHelp Interactive, along with “LibGuides”, information guides designed for public libraries. These automated forms and guides help people create basic forms for:

  • small claims court,
  • modification of child support,
  • provisional custody by mandate,
  • some expungements,
  • basic divorce,
  • unemployment compensation,
  • unpaid wages, and
  • security deposit refunds.

The LibGuides provide librarians with the information they need to help their patrons find the legal information and court forms they need.

In 2016 through generous funding from local foundations, the ABA Center for Innovation, Stanford University, and other collaborative partners, we created the Flood Proof Program to help flooded homeowners rebuild their lives and homes. To enhance legal services, the Flood Proof App, compatible with Apple and Android devices, was also developed to help disaster survivors. It helps disaster survivors living in their property collect information and materials to remove legal barriers to recovery funds by untangling titles.

Create court forms to respond to a lawsuit filed against you for consumer debt issues. The online program allows you to create online forms for these consumer debt issues only:

  • Medical Debt
  • Credit Card Debt
  • Car Loan Debt

You will be asked questions about yourself and the consumer debt problem that you were sued on. The computer program will use the information you enter to create the forms you select.
