Union County Public Library Offers New Resource to Help Residents with Basic Legal Needs

Posted on 03/17/17

Selling a house? Making a will? Signing a lease? Gale LegalForms, an online, authoritative legal resource, is now available.

Monroe, NC, March, 17, 2017 – Union County residents can now access Gale LegalForms, a robust online collection of legal forms for free through Union County Public Library’s website. With access to authentic “attorney forms”, residents can better understand common legal procedures and the involved documents.

Unlike other online legal products – which frequently include generic, do-it-yourself materials that may not have been drafted by an attorney – Gale LegalForms offers a well-organized collection of forms actually used in legal practices, and allows users to edit the forms as they need.

Gale LegalForms delivers real-world legal information to residents in usable and customizable formats and simplifies common law transactions,” said Carolyn Kubisz, Reference Services Librarian. “This database will help library users take greater control over their legal affairs.”

From Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, Gale LegalForms offers an easy-to-use, state-by-state and step-by-step approach to addressing basic legal matters, such as developing a will, conducting real estate transactions including rental or lease agreements, and more. Users have access to thousands of customizable online legal documents that are available anytime from any place. Many of the forms can be used across all 50 states, while the resource also includes forms unique to each particular state.

Coupled with the straightforward interface, users avoid hours of research often required to develop legal documents. Users can simply locate the appropriate form that’s needed by using the homepage links, download the form and plug in their information.

Union County residents can access LegalForms 24/7, on any device by visiting the library’s website at
