Generally, no. Most forms do not come with instructions, and that's a shame. Much of the lingo used on these forms is difficult for non-lawyers to decipher.

Before the enactment of the new law, instructions were provided with most forms. Since the new law was passed, court websites have removed the instructions they used to provide, saying they are "under revision". This is unfortunate as most of the forms have not changed significantly, and the old instructions re more helpful than no instructions at all.

For up to date instructions, you can buy Nolo's book, How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. You'll not only get instructions for all forms, but also step by step guidance throughout the entire bankruptcy process.
