This section has links to the forms that are prescribed by the Provincial 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, 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.
