Forms

Just as life is a series of choices we make, so is this forms page. Most forms made available on this page have been provided in four different formats. You must select the format best for you, depending on the software available to you on your computer. Not everyone has all four of these programs available on their computer but, if you have at least one of the appropriate programs, you will be able to download the form you are requesting. Two of the programs used to access these forms are free and two are proprietary in nature, meaning that they must be purchased. If you do not have one of these proprietary programs available to you, it is suggested that you download one of the free programs. Each of these four programs is discussed below.

Portable Document Format forms are indicated as “.pdf.” Be certain you have Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or higher installed on your computer. If not, download Adobe Acrobat Reader now. Adobe Acrobat Reader is free and will allow you to complete forms on-line and print them out but not save them. After downloading the software, return to this page to select the PDF files you want to download. If you are still having problems, reboot your computer and try viewing the PDF files again.

● To begin typing in the form, use your mouse to click in the field and begin typing. To continue to navigate through the form, use the mouse to click in other fields or use the Tab key.
● Do not use the Return key inside the form for navigation between the fields.
● To scroll through the document, use the Scroll Bar or click on the page advance icons (first page, next page, previous page, last page)on the menu bar at the top of the document to advance page by page through the document.
● To make a check-mark, use your mouse and left-click in the area.
● Some fields (such as signature fields, date fields and notary fields) are intentionally left blank. You will need to print the completed form and have the respective individual sign and date the appropriate fields.
● If you are using the Reader (and not the full version of Acrobat) you can not save the form after you have filled it out.
