Prepare your Application

To start a court case, you must fill out a number of court forms and give them to your partner.

You can get these family law court forms from the court or online. They are available in French and English.

The main form you fill out is Form 8: Application. In it, you:

  • give basic information about your family, such as your name, date of birth, and address, and those of your partner and your children
  • the history of your relationship with your partner
  • check off the issues you're asking the judge to help you with
  • list the orders you're asking the judge to make
  • give facts and reasons for each order you're asking for

You may need to fill out other forms depending on what you're asking for.
