Forms & Filing

Online Judicial Council Forms 

STATE FORMS: Most forms used at court are state forms and are on the State Judicial Council website linked above. 

LOCAL FORMS: In addition to forms approved by the State Judicial Council, the Stanislaus County Superior Court has approved a variety of forms, some of which are fillable.   

Some commonly used state and local forms have also been grouped together in "packets" with instruction sheets.

PLEADINGS: If there is no state or local forms for the document you need to file, you will have to create the document on what is referred to as “Pleading Paper.”  For help with creating a pleading visit the Self Help Center web page or visit the Stanislaus County Law Library.
There are filing fees for some forms and the fee will be required at the time of filing unless you qualify for a Fee Waiver, which is a State Form.
