Issue Specific Sites - Oregon
For forms in Oregon, look at the Oregon Judicial Department website, and each Judicial District Website.  Some forms will be county specific so check the judicial district where your county is located for forms they may have and then for statewide forms on the Judicial Department Website. These sites, along with the Oregon State Bar, have legal information (not legal advice) that may help you develop your issues for a consultation with a JAG or with a private attorney.  Other states have similar systems with forms on line with their judicial department and or through their state bar.  Beware of forms provided from other than governmental related sources and for forms that you pay for.  You should always consult with an attorney in any legal matter.
Expungement (Oregon)-
Each Judicial District may have posted expungment forms for the counties the district serves.
