Form Packet for Making a Motion in a Civil Case

If you have a civil case in King County Superior Court and need to ask your assigned judge to do something, this packet may be very helpful.  It has instructions and forms for submitting a motion (the way you ask the court to do something) and a proposed order (the thing that you’re asking the court to do).

This is NOT meant for family law cases or for presentation to the Ex Parte Department.

You can order the packet from our website HERE.

The Library can be contacted at (206) 477-1305 or Services@KCLL.org

You Can Now Access Do-It-Yourself Legal Materials on the KCLL Website!

The King County Law Library is proud to announce that we are making the NOLO Press database of DIY (do-it-yourself) legal materials available for free to all King County Residents.

The books contain helpful guidance and sample forms on a number of very popular topics.  Titles include “Credit Repair,” “Neighbor Law,” and “The Quick & Legal Will Book” and many others.  These have always been powerful resources for patrons working on their own legal issues in the Library and we’re excited to now make them accessible from your home or office.

View the full news release HERE.

There will be also be a free webinar on Thursday, February 11th from 6pm-7pm that demonstrates how you can use NOLO and other remotely accessible Library materials to address common credit and money concerns.  You can read more and register HERE.

You can access the NOLO titles from our Remote Databases page HERE.

If You’re Facing Eviction, You May Be Protected

A recent order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) prohibits evictions due to an inability to pay – under certain circumstances.  The Suffolk University Law School has created an interactive questionnaire to help people decide whether they qualify under the federal guidelines.  It also generates a declaration that you can share with your landlord.

To qualify, you must be under a certain income limit, be unable to pay housing costs due to a substantial loss of income, and not have a suitable housing alternative.

While most of the interactive forms are specific to Massachusetts state courts, the protections afforded by the CDC order apply nationally – including here in Washington State.

To see if you qualify, access the Eviction Moratorium Assistant HERE.

There is more information about the CDC eviction protections HERE.
