This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.

You may find it more helpful to use the official court forms (they're free) if your jurisdiction offers them on-line. Also, more and more, courts are offering Self-Help Service Centers that assist pro se litigants with court forms.

If you want to send me your city and county in GA, I can look to see if your jurisdiction offers those services.
