FORMS

The Clerk's office provides minimal pre-made forms regarding some case types (there is a fee that varies depending on the size of the packets*).

You are also welcome to download and print your own through the Washington Courts website, which also provides forms for common case items. https://www.courts.wa.gov/forms/

Most civil case type forms (excepting Protection Orders) are NOT provided by the clerks, and recommend seeking legal counsel for what forms your case may require. 

All cases except Criminal and DV Protection Orders, require a filing fee of some sort to get started. Please see the fee schedule regarding superior court costs. If you feel that the amount of the filing fee would create a hardship on you, you may also fill out a motion and order to waive filing costs.

*Packets are provided as a general courtesy; they may or may not contain all the forms your specific case needs considering everyone's situation may be different.

Motion and Order to Waive Filing Fees

Protection Orders: There are multiple types of protection orders that can be issued depending on your situation, as well as different locations to file them initially. Anti-Harassment petitions can be filed in both district and superior court (they each also cost a fee to file). See the links below to help determine what your situation may call for. 

Please bring the Law Enforcement Sheet, Petition for Order of Protection, and Temporary Order for Protection completely filled out when ready to file. Any additional documentation you wish to bring in support to your petition for the order, please attach to the backside of the petition on ONE-SIDED paper.
