Official Forms: The appellate rules forms are officially published in an Appendix of Forms accompanying the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.

Word-Processing Templates: For user convenience, the Administrative Office Forms Working Group of judges and clerks has recommended making available to the public the unofficial WordPerfect and Word-compatible rtf versions linked below. Given their nature, language in these forms may require modification before the document can be filed with the court. Red font is used to draw attention to these instances. Instructions are enclosed in angle brackets, and alternative phrases appear in square brackets. These forms are therefore offered as templates based on the official published forms, but are not identical to them.
