Free Legal Forms — For The Public
As I am not an attorney, I cannot prepare forms or documents or papers for you to sign. I CAN notarize them once you have them prepared.
One type of document that is easy to get and that is free covers basic health care planning and you can get it from the State of Tennessee. In fact, effective May 9, 2017, the State has combined the previous two documents into one, now called an Advance Directive for Health Care form and that has been adopted by the Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities, so doctors and hospitals in Tennessee should all be familiar with this form. (According to the State, this one form takes the place of the Living Will and the Health Care Power of Attorney). You can get the one form FOR FREE on the State of Tennessee website at
If you need a Quit Claim Deed or a Warranty Deed in Tennessee, the Shelby County Register’s Office has FREE forms at http://register.shelby.tn.us/forms.php in pdf and Word formats.
The Shelby County Schools has information about what is required to prove you reside in the County so your child or children can be registered for schools, including the FREE Shared Residence Affidavit which has to be Notarized, at this location: http://www.scsk12.org/registration/proof?PID=792 . You can also read more about this on my blog post entitled Shelby County Schools – Shared Residence Affidavit.
Most government forms can be found for FREE on the website of the government agency involved.
For non-government legal forms, you may try rocketlawyer.com, nolo.com or legalzoom.com (these three sites may charge you for the form); or try googling the title of the form to see if you can find a free one online.
Or, your local library may have a book of legal forms or a book related to your area of interest which contains forms.
Please be aware that legal forms found on the Internet or in books may not contain up-to-date and state-specific information and may not be legally-binding as a result.
I can not tell you if your form is legally valid, as I am not an attorney. My role is limited to notarizing what you present to me (after other notary requirements are met). If you want to be sure your form is up-to-date and legally-binding, please consult an attorney in your jurisdiction.
Wherever you get the document, if it has a Notary Certificate already on it and you are in Tennessee, I can probably notarize it. Also, I can add a Notary Certificate to your document, if it lacks one. Please see my Frequently Asked Questions page for what you need to bring (or have available, if you are asking me to travel to your location) in order for your document to be notarized.
