These forms are provided as a convenience to individuals with legal business in the Commonwealth of Kentucky to assist them in their official capacities or their pursuit of justice. Some forms require assistance from the local County Attorney or Commonwealth's Attorney. Many will have no legal effect unless signed by the appropriate judge. The proper use and handling of these legal forms is important. Improper use of a form, or alteration of a form (beyond mere completion) without removal of the seal of the Commonwealth and the AOC form number, is prohibited and may result in civil or criminal liability.
