Welcome to New Brunswick’s Family Law Information Centre

This website is an initiative of the Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick (PLEIS-NB).  It offers general information and resources about family law in New Brunswick. If you have questions about how the courts work, court rules, and court procedures, you can call our toll-free Family Law Information Line at
1-888-236-2444. However, PLEIS-NB staff cannot provide legal advice or comment on your specific situation. 

We hope you find the information on this site helpful.  If you plan to fill in your own forms and/or represent yourself, we encourage you to get legal advice to be sure you are doing it properly.

This website was developed with project funding from Justice Canada.
