65th District Court Resources

Court Forms

Several forms are available from the District Court for a small fee of 25 cents to $1.00 per form. There is a limit of 10 forms per request. All forms are approved by the State Court Administrative Office.

This page offers a web link to the Michigan Supreme Court. You may download (free of charge) approved forms from that site. Complete the forms and bring to the Court for filing. Because some filings require multi-part forms, it may be necessary for the clerk to make additional copies from your original at a fee of $1.00 per page. If you wish, you may purchase the multi-part forms from the court.

Notice on Legal Advice

Deputy Clerks and employees of the 65B District Court cannot give legal advice. They are not attorneys and cannot advise you on legal issues. They may provide general information regarding court operations and procedures. They can provide you, at your request, any blank form the court has in stock at a small fee.

When you ask:

"What form do I use?"

"How do I fill out this form?"

"What part of the law applies in my case?"

"What does this mean?"

These all seem like simple questions, but in fact they are legal questions asking for legal guidance. Legal questions should be referred to your attorney. If you do not have an attorney, check the yellow pages for an attorney in your area. Additionally The State Bar of Michigan offers a lawyer referral service. The phone number is 517-482-8816.
