Checklist & Forms

Family Law Forms

To help the many litigants who file cases in family courts who are not represented by an attorney (pro selitigants), and to improve the response of the courts to the pro se litigants, the Florida Supreme Court has adopted standardized family law forms that can be used by the pro se litigants to process their family law case. The court adopted forms are identified as Florida Family Law Rules and Procedure Forms, or Florida supreme Court Approved Family Law Forms, or Local Forms (which are forms that have been approved in writing by the Chief Judge of a judicial circuit).

Obtaining the Family Law Forms

You can obtain all of the family law forms adopted by the Florida Supreme Court that you will be required to file in a family law case at: Self Help - Family Law Forms

If you do not own a computer, the Internet can be accessed on computers located at your local public library or in two locations in the Duval County Courthouse: Room 2291 Law Library and Room 2150 Family Court Services (Duval County Only).

Checklist and Forms available at Family Court Services are listed below.

Prior to filing completing and/or filing any documents you may want to consult with a case manager to ensure you are working from the correct checklist.

Case Managers are not Attorneys.

Case Managers are not authorized to fill out paperwork or to give legal advice. 

If you have a complicated legal issues, you will be advised to speak with an attorney.
