Below is a listing of and links to blank forms that are necessary in filing for Custody.
They are separated into two (2) categories:
The forms listed under "Required Forms" MUST be submitted in order for your filing
accepted by the Court.
The forms listed under "Situational Forms"
be filed if your circumstances
match those described.
All forms are provided in Microsoft Word (.doc) format. If you do not own Microsoft Word or the Microsoft Office Suite,
you may want to consider downloading Open Office, free of charge, from the www.openoffice.org.
IF you are not able to determine which forms you need to file, please review the CUSTODY INSTRUCTION PACKET, visit the Family Court Resource Center in your County, or consider contacting an attorney. ALL Pro Se litigants are encouraged to review the CUSTODY INSTRUCTION PACKET while preparing their filing.
This form should be filed if you know that the Respondent is NOT in the military service of the United States of America and ONLY if the Respondent has not filed an answer or otherwise entered an appearance with the Court by the day of your hearing
