FORMS

The Judicial Council creates a few of the forms needed for traffic issues. Sacramento County Superior Court also creates forms for use in this county specifically. For other situations, you may need to create your own forms. Our Research Guides & Step by Steps have instructions and samples for many commonly-used forms.

Judicial Council Forms (http://courts.ca.gov/forms.htm).
These mandatory forms can be filled out online.

Sacramento County Local Court Forms (http://saccourt.ca.gov/forms/forms.aspx).
These cannot be filled out online. You can print them out and complete them by hand.

Sacramento County Public Law Library has prepared forms for some common situations for which there is no Judicial Council or local form. See the guides listed below to access the relevant forms.
