Find Court and Legal Forms

Many, but not all, court forms are available through the Maryland Judiciary website. Below are the links to some of the most commonly used forms from Maryland's District and Circuit Courts, Maryland's Office of Register of Wills, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, and selected other sources. Local public law libraries [1] can provide additional resources, including sample forms when there is not an official form for the legal action.

Court of Special Appeals

The Court of Special Appeals publishes a guide for self-represented litigants seeking to file an appeal with the Court. The guide outlines the steps for filing an appeal and includes sample  forms and notices and a sample brief and is available on the Court's website [38].

Advanced Directives

The Maryland Attorney General's website has an excellent guide [39] and blank form [40]

Power of Attorney

Maryland's Power of Attorney forms are set by statute. Downloadable samples of Personal Financial Power of Attorney [41] and Limited Power of Attorney [42] are available from Maryland Office of the Attorney General.

Register of Wills

The Maryland Register of Wills is responsible for appointing personal representatives to administer decedents' estates and for overseeing the administration of these proceedings. Forms can be found within its website [43]. If you are unclear about which form to use, the Register of Wills publishes several guides [44] on administering estates and guardianship of minors.

U.S. Bankruptcy Court

Filing for bankruptcy is handled in Federal Court.  Forms for The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland can be found on its website [45]. The Bankruptcy Court also provides resources [46] for self-represented individuals who are facing bankruptcy.
