Free Document-Preparation Websites

The following website will help you fill out legal documents for free. It will ask you a series of questions and use your answers to complete the documents you need.

Regardless of how you fill out your documents, it is advised that you set up a user account (at no charge) which will allow you to save your forms, leave/return later if you need more time to complete forms or if you want/need to change your answers. This will not send you unsolicited email.

Once your forms are complete, you may eFile them, file them in person or send them by mail to the appropriate address listed below.  You cannot file by email. 

  • Nevada City Clerk’s Office
    201 Church St, Nevada City CA 95959
  • Truckee Clerk’s Office
    10075 Levon Ave, Truckee CA 96161

If a filing fee is required for your document(s), that needs to be submitted with the documents.

If you would like to file remotely, you can use an eFiling service.  You will find a list of eFiling Service Providers on our website at Document Filing | Superior Court of California | County of Nevada.
