It is recommended that you have the Adobe Acrobat Reader version 8 or newer installed on your computer to complete a Fillable Adobe PDF form. Adobe Acrobat Reader 8 is recommended because it is the most compatible version for completing fillable PDF forms. Download the free Adobe Reader.
Once the PDF form is open in your web browser, you may enter information into the form's fields using your mouse and keyboard. None of the information you enter is collected by the judiciary. If you prefer to complete the form or application by hand, simply print the PDF as you would any other to do so.
Fillable PDF forms cannot be saved with the information you entered included in the saved file. The purpose of these forms is to allow you to type your responses to the questions in the form or application and then print the form to be submitted via traditional mail or fax (depending on the requirements specific to each form). Fillable PDF forms cannot be emailed or submitted via some other electronic means.
Once you have finished filling out the form, you should print the form and be sure to complete any additional fields that don't allow typed responses (such as your signature, date signed, notary signature, etc.). Then treat the form as you would if you had completed it by hand.
