These are the common forms filed before a hearing or trial, including how to issues a subponea.

A subpoena can do a few things:

  • Require someone to give you a copy of a document.
  • Require someone to attend a court event.
  • Require someone to bring documents with them to a court event.

Keep in mind that you will have to pay for the person's travel costs to come to a court event.
