Free Document-Preparation Websites

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

Regardless of which service you use, 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. These services will not send you unsolicited email.

Once your forms are complete, you may file them in person or send them by mail to the appropriate address listed below. 

  • 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), one of our clerks will contact you to arrange payment.

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.
