If you started your Supreme Court case before July 1, 2010

Effective July 1, 2010, if you have a family law case in Supreme Court, you have to use new forms and follow new processes. (If you're not sure you have a Supreme Court case, see Do you need to go to Provincial (Family) Court or Supreme Court?)

If you were partway through your case, you had to start using the new forms and processes on/after July 1, 2010. You don't have to replace the old forms you already completed and filed unless unless the other party serves you with a Demand (Form F99) that requires you to do so.

We updated and streamlined all the relevant self-help guides to follow the new rules.

We updated all the relevant fact sheets to follow the new rules and created a couple of new ones. We also updated all the relevant FAQ and added a few new ones.

The Court forms page was updated to link to the new forms and sample completed court forms, mostly on the JP Boyd on Family Law website.
