For the convenience of the Bar and public, the court provides various forms for the processing of routine requests. Use of these forms also expedites the handling of such requests. Copies of those forms routinely processed through the Presiding Judge’s office are provided in the Attorney Reference Manual and other forms are included in the Appendix to the court’s Supplementary Local Rules. These forms may be photocopied or reproduced in your own word processing system. If you reproduce a form in your own computer system, please be sure to include all information requested. The Praecipe form should be copied on blue paper.


Oregon now provides a simple, straightforward, FREE Question-and-Answer based interview process for some forms. Your answers to the online interview will automatically fill out the forms for you. Then print the forms and file them with the clerk at the Multnomah County Circuit Court.
