Welcome to my blog and the reference point in my fight against an archaic, unjust family court system in Marshall County, Alabama. I plan on posting my thoughts, items of interest, and resources I find helpful in hopes that it can be helpful to someone else. Now take a deep breath. Here I go...

I hit the GOLD mine for Alabama legal forms!!!

Alabama Rules of the Court

Ok, so click above and then select which court system you are dealing with (Civil, Criminal, Juvenile, Appellate, or Judicial Administration).  Most sections have a form appendix at the bottom.  For child support, the forms are partially in Judicial Administration (look at Rule 32) and also in Civil.

Of course, you have to know what you are looking for and I have found a little "how to" query on Google will solve that problem generally.  This is literally an f'in gold mine if you are trying to get something done in the Alabama court system.  There is enough information here that not only will you know what forms you need to file, but also what type of information is required.  Keep in mind that MOST legal documents are forms and can be easily copied IF you know which form to use.  Now, some of the more routine court actions (like complaints and most motions for example) are NOT listed but that is because it is governed by common law.  In other words, the form is the same in most all states.  If you find a form in California, it MIGHT work in Alabama, but more than likely you can take the California form, add a few items, and then it will work in Alabama (like stating that you are a resident in a particular county in Alabama, in Alabama that is a requirement to establish the Court's jurisdiction over your legal matter).

As they say, knowledge is power, and if that is true then this is a very powerful web resource for Alabamians!!!
