You should see a document similar to the one below with a colored bar across the top of the page you are viewing (the example is purple, but yours may be a different color). If you see it then you can type in your information prior to printing the form. If the colored bar is not there, then the form is not fillable and you will need to print the form first then handwrite the requested information.
Once you click the Highlight Fields button, all spaces on the page where you can type will turn blue.
Benefits of Using the Fillable Form Option
Using the fillable forms makes it easier to read the information you typed versus if you had handwritten the information.
- It allows the Court, Trustees, and other parties to be able to easily read the documents you have submitted for filing.
- Fillable forms also allow you to save the documents to a disk or drive if you choose. If you misplace your records and have to request copies from the Court, you will be required to pay a fee.
- The forms are always the most current and are FREE. When you pay for forms from other sources, such as office supply stores, the Court cannot guarantee that the forms are up to date. All of the forms found on the Court’s Web sites are always the most current form available at no cost to you.
