To complete court forms correctly, you must learn some basics about legal writing. Legal writing is the style of writing used when you’re writing a document that’s filed or presented at court.
When legal documents are poorly written, the judge has difficulty understanding your situation and your legal arguments might be lost. The easier it is to understand your documents, the more convincing your legal arguments will be. Since you want to convince the judge to decide in your favor, it’s important to take the time to write clearly and well.
