GUIDE TO PRACTICE

In order to assist litigants and attorneys using the Natchitoches City Court, the court has created this  "Guide to Practice" .  This document is not meant to be a definitive statement of the law nor may it be cited to the court as support for any position.  This document is merely a tool to be utilized to assist litigants and attorneys in access to the court.  Legal citations are provided to assist litigants and attorneys in their quest to determine applicable law and procedure.

Please be advised that the Supreme Court’s Uniform Forms Committee for Louisiana City and Parish Courts has posted a set of general, non-mandatory forms on the Information for Self-Represented Litigants page (link) on the Supreme Court’s website to assist both attorneys and self-represented litigants in city and parish courts statewide. These forms are basic templates of some – not all – forms commonly used in limited jurisdiction courts.
