Michigan Automated Court Forms

MichiganLegalAid.org is pleased to offer a selection of Michigan court forms which have been automated using HotDocs® technology kindly donated by LexisNexis®.

This technology allows users to complete court forms by responding to a series of online queries and prompts, then print them out and file in the appropriate court as needed.

Instructions:

To access specific forms, which are grouped according to how they are used, click on the appropriate item in the list below. You will then be prompted to either register for a confidential account, which is necessary if you want to be able to save incomplete forms and return later to finish them, or to go directly to the form you want to fill out. Please make sure you are using Internet Explorer when completing the forms - at this time other browsers will not work with Hot Docs® properly.

Note:

Our interactive forms are intended for use by low income users of MichiganLegalAid.org. A full selection of Michigan court forms available to the general public for printing and filling out manually is available at http://courts.michigan.gov/scao/courtforms/.

FEE WAIVER FORM

The Court charges filing fees in many types of cases. If you are receiving public assistance or are low income, these fees will be waived by the Court.

MC 20 - Suspension of Fees - Use this form to ask the Court to waive fees.

GARNISHMENT FORMS

If there is a Judgment against you and you agree that you owe it but need a "payment plan", you can ask the judge to order installment payments and you cannot be garnished so long as you stay current in your payments. Use these forms to ask the Court to set up a plan.

DC 87 - Affidavit of Judgment Debtor - Use this form to collect a judgment after the Judge signs it.

MC 15 - Motion for Installment Payments - Use this form to ask the Court to allow you to make installment payments on a garnishment.

MC 15a - Order Regarding Installment Payments - Use this form with MC 15 when you ask the Court to allow you to make installment payments.

If you are garnished, you can object (1) if the Judgment has been paid, (2) if the account that the creditor is trying to get contain protected funds such as Social Security. Use the following forms to object.

MC 49 - Objections to Garnishment - Use this form to object to a garnishment.

MC 51 - Order on Objections to Garnishment - Use this form with MC 49 when objecting to a garnishment.
