| EDITS IN PROGRESS
JP Boyd on Family Law is undergoing updates. Some information is out-of-date, especially information about Provincial Court (rules, forms, and procedures), parenting after separation and moving away after separation under the Divorce Act. Read more under:
|*CAUTION Several Supreme Court Family Forms changed format as of 25 January 2021 and 1 March 2021. See the BC Government's announcement for more details. Accordingly, some examples of completed forms have been removed until editors can revise them.|
This section has links to the forms that are prescribed by the Supreme Court Family Rules.
Check the section Other Forms and Documents (Family Law) for other forms mentioned in this resource that are required by legislation other than the Supreme Court Family Rules (for example, the Registration of Divorce Proceedings form), or are examples of documents used by people solving family law problems inside or outside of court.
Blank PDF: These forms are fillable forms available from the Ministry of Justice in .PDF format.
Blank Word: These are templates prepared by John-Paul Boyd in Word .DOC format that you can download and prepare on your computer. (Green text shows where you must make a choice, add information or provide an explanation.)
Blank HTML: These are links to the forms as they appear in the text of the rules of court. These forms are good for reference but will be difficult to work with in a word processing program like Word or Pages.
Completed Example: These are examples of what John-Paul's forms look like when they're filled out.
The example forms are based on the pretend court proceeding between John and Jane Doe and are provided for illustration purposes only. These forms show how John and Jane are dealing with their case involving the care of children, child support, spousal support and the division of property and debt, but you can't and shouldn't assume that the way these forms are filled out will apply to your situation.
