King County Forms and Instructions
This eviction packet was drafted by an attorney who frequently practices landlord-tenant law in King and surrounding counties in Washington state. It is intended for use in standard landlord-tenant situations, as governed by RCW Ch. 59.18. It is not appropriate for removing family or friends, for example, who had never agreed to pay rent.
Although the eviction kit has detailed instructions, it is not a substitute for legal advice.
NOTE: If you invited someone to live with you and now need them to leave but they don’t have a lease agreement, contact us to learn more about a special packet we have for possibly ending a tenancy-at-will.

Use this packet to initiate a claim against a contractor (or subcontractor) bond. If a contractor (or subcontractor) breaches a construction contract or performs inferior or negligent work, homeowners and other authorized parties have the option of making a claim against the contractor’s bond.
This packet was written specifically for King County Superior Court. The claim on a contractor’s bond process is based on state laws. If you are using this outside King County, contact your local court for information specific to your county.
Petitioning the court to restore your right to possess a firearm is complicated. It is not always possible to reinstate your rights. To see if you qualify, review Chapter 9.41.040 of the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) or contact an attorney. If you are prohibited from possessing a firearm due to multiple convictions, then you must restore your right to possess a firearm for every conviction.
If after reviewing the Revised Code of Washington and/or consulting an attorney you believe you are eligible to reinstate your right to possess a firearm, then you can use this packet to complete the process.
This packet was written specifically for Washington. If you are prohibited from possessing a firearm under Federal law or in another state, restoring your right to possess a firearm in WA will not change those prohibitions.
If you are a survivor of domestic violence and you want the name change record sealed due to a “reasonable fear” for your safety, you can petition the superior court to change your name and/or your child’s name. RCW 4.24.130. The court will seal the file if it believes that safety justifies the sealing. Once sealed, there is no public access to any court record of the name change filing, even if the court does not grant the name change.
An advocate from the Domestic Violence Protection Order Advocates office and/or an attorney can help survivors think about the good or bad consequences of the name change process.
