i already have these forms. i just need to know what to write. I am not familiar with the questions and do not know how to fully answer them.

thanks

Hello again and thanks for writing back. I will be glad to try and help out. I apologize if I misunderstood your initial inquiry.

 

There are numerous fields in each of these forms, so if you would please let me know which ones have you stumped I will point you in the right direction. It would be helpful if you ask about each form separately -- i.e. question about number 1 on CIV-110 or question about number 2 on CIV-120...something like that would be great. Once I receive your specific questions I will post my answers.

 

I hope this is of some more help. Take care and thanks again for using Just AnswerTM.

thanks for your help i will address form civ 110 first:

1. party without attorney. i believe this would be me because i do not have an attorney.
2 request for dismissal. do i check the box "other" since it is a civil case and the rest of boxes do not apply?
3.to the clerk. section 1b what do i mark?

it states that a conformed copy will not be returned by the clerk unless a method or return is provided with the document. what does this mean?

do i need to get this form notorized or filed at the county recorders office?

do i need to get this form notorized or filed at the county recorders office?

Hello again. I will try and reply in order corresponding to your questions as posed.

 

  1. Yes, that is correct. You are pro se -- or under California law pro per.
  2. Yes, that is right. Where it says Other (specify): just write in a basic description of the matter -- need not be formal and a word or two will likely suffice.
  3. This is a bit more complicated, but it works like this. (a)(1) "with prejudice" means it cannot be refiled at a later date; (a)(2) "without prejudice" means it can be refiled at a later date. (b)(1) - (b)(4) each of these four choices refer to what document you want dismissed -- i.e. you can look at a "Complaint" you were served and seek dismissal of the same named document; probably, however, you want to check (b)(5) to dismiss the entire lawsuit -- this is definitely what you want if you were the person sued and want the matter to go away.

The "conformed copy" comments simply means you have to provide a self-addressed stamped envelope to have the clerk mail you a copy of your filing once it has been processed.

 

No to both on getting notarized.

 

Yes to both on filing.

 

I hope this is of some more help. Take care and thanks again for using Just AnswerTM.

one more question...do i go to the county recorders office before or after i have the clerk stamp it and sign.

thanks

Hello again.

 

No problem, I am glad to try and help. Take your original and have it stamped. Then request a copy of the file-stamped document (to keep for your records). Finally, file the original file-stamped document. The staff is usually pretty nice about helping out so no need to feel bad about just asking for assistance.

 

I hope this is of some more help. Take care and thanks again for using Just AnswerTM.
