Instructions for Completing and Printing Forms
- To help you select and complete the forms you will need for your action, check out the Self-Help Guides on this website to see if any of them relate to your family law matter. You should read the guides carefully. They might help you decide what information you need to provide. Look at the FAQs and Ask an Expert Videos for more tips and information on court procedures.
- Once you know which forms you need, you can click on the type of action to review, download or print the required forms.
- The forms necessary for applying to the Court in a family law matter are set out in the “Rules of Court” and “Forms of Court”. You cannot alter the Forms of Court so please do not try to cut out sections or change anything about the form. If certain parts of the form do not apply to you, simply cross them out.
- The Court requires that you submit (file) Forms according to certain standards…be sure to print the forms you need on legal size paper (8 ½ x 14) unless otherwise indicated. One of the few forms that does not have to be on legal size paper is the Notice of Motion.
- You can complete your forms electronically and print them on legal paper to file. Be sure to check your default printer setting and change it to legal paper, if necessary, when you print your forms.
- You can instead simply print off the form on legal size paper and fill it in by hand. The explanatory notes will print as “endnotes” on the last page.
- Please note, that you cannot “e-file” forms. You must file the forms and fees with the Court in person or by mail.
- If you can’t print the forms, make a list of the ones that you may need and go to any Service New Brunswick Office. They will give you copies of the forms. You will have to pay a photocopy fee to get these forms. A few family law forms such as the Petition, Joint Petition and Financial Statement are also available directly from the court.
