Family Law Forms

Instructions for Completing and Printing Forms

  • To help you select and complete the forms you will need, 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.
  • If you are in the judicial district of Saint John (Queens, Charlotte, and Saint John counties) or Moncton (Albert, Westmorland, and Kent counties), you can contact the Family Law Information Center (FLIC) at their respective courthouses:
    • Saint John FLIC: Saint John Law courts, 10 Peel Plaza, Level 2; 506-658-2261
    • Moncton FLIC: Moncton law Courts, 145 Assomption Blvd., First Floor; 506-856-3131
  • Once you know which forms you need, you can access them online via the NB Attorney General, or by going to your local Service New Brunswick and requesting the form(s) by name. Note that there may be a small fee to print these 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 one-sided and with approximately 4cm margins. Font should be 12pt. For information on the format of court documents you can see Rule 4 of the NB Rules of Court.
  • If you have a fillable copy, you can complete your forms electronically and print them to file.
  • You can instead simply print off the form and fill it in by hand.
  • 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. Family law forms in the judicial districts of Moncton and Saint John can be accessed through the FLICs listed above.
