Gale LegalForms Launched

02 May Gale LegalForms Launched

Available now, the La Porte County Public Library is offering a new database: Gale LegalForms.

Gale LegalForms helps library customers understand common legal procedures and provides access to thousands of customizable legal documents.   Users can access the same forms used by law firms covering legal topics, such as bankruptcy, bill of sale, contracts, divorce, employment, landlord tenant, real estate, taxes, name change, power of attorney, last will and testament, and living wills.   Plus, many forms are ideal for supporting legal tasks relevant to business owners, such as filing for copyrights, patents and trademarks, articles of incorporation, licenses, and more.

These documents are derived from authentic attorney forms that continually update to reflect the latest laws. Using the templated forms, individuals can create accurate, reliable legal documents specific to their state (for in library use, the forms default to Indiana) without stress or uncertainty. Forms are accessible online, mobile responsive, and downloadable in Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat, and other formats.

Customers can access Gale LegalForms from the Library catalog resource list and choose it from the list of Research Databases.  Users can also access the database from the Library website here.

Please note:  The materials available from the Library are for informational purposes only and should be used only as a starting point for addressing your legal issues.  Legal advice is not provided.  Likewise, Library staff are not legal experts and cannot provide legal advice, but may help customers with navigating and using this resource or provide notary services for forms requiring a Notary Public.  Customers seeking legal advice should contact an attorney directly.
