Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
There is no actual form for this, you have to file a motion and notice of motion for leave to amend complaint and you need to state in the motion why you are seeking to amend and you have to attach a copy of your amended complaint. You are filing the leave to amend pursuant to WV Rule of Civil Procedure 7-16, which allows an amendment with leave of court once the defendant has answered the suit (if the defendant has not answered the suit, you could file without a motion for leave to do so). Your complaint looks identical to the first complaint you filed except it is titled "First Amended Complaint."
The format for the motion, court name and case name at the top, is the same as your complaint, you title it Motion for Leave to Amend and then you state you are asking the court for leave to amend pursuant to the rule above. You also submit a notice of motion with the motion for it to be heard for the court to order the amended complaint. Do not forget to attach the amended complaint to your motion for leave to amend.
