You find many court forms on the website of the respective Clerk of the Circuit Court of a jurisdiction.
The problem you run into, as with any forms, is that they are general and vague.
That is why most attorneys create their own forms and don't typically rely on the standard, vague forms. Otherwise robots could do our job and we wouldn't need to get an education for it.
Talk to an attorney. Don't go for robotic lawyering, get a real live lawyer for customized advice.
Yes you will need to hire a lawyer. to answer your questions, Cook County's supervision is four months long typically.
While I am perfectly willing to tell somebody that whether or not they need a lawyer, your age is very relevant here. If you are under the age of 21, there is a possibility of suspension.

I don't even know if they were houseguests? Was there an arrest or not? Did they take any evidence with them? Are they trying to use any illegally seized evidence against you or not?
