The forms are available for comment until May 1, 2020. Comments may be submitted through the court’s website or by emailing Kathleen Callahan at kcallahan@illinoiscourts.gov.

After the public comment period ends, the Commission on Access to Justice will review the feedback and suggestions and make any necessary revisions.

In 2012, the Illinois Supreme Court adopted Rule 10-101 and entered an Administrative Order to set out a formal process for the development, review, and approval of standardized forms for use in the Illinois courts by the Commission on Access to Justice.

A complete list of approved forms that are accepted in all Illinois courts can be found on the court’s website.
