Please note our website is currently being updated to reflect the expansion of the Family Division jurisdiction to include all areas of the province except Bridgewater.
If you live in all areas except Bridgewater, you will go to the Supreme Court Family Division nearest you for all family law matters and use the Family Division forms (Supreme Court Family Division Forms ) to make an application.
Bridgewater remains under Family Court Rules and therefore, if Bridgewater Courts are nearest to you and you wish to make an application to the Court for a divorce or division of property, you will make application at the Bridgewater Supreme Court using these forms: Bridgewater Supreme Court Forms. In Bridgewater, all other family law related matters are processed by Bridgewater Family Court, and Family Court forms apply (Bridgewater Family Court Forms).
We are also updating our website to reflect changes to the Divorce Act that came into effect on March 1, 2021. While this work is underway, you can learn more about what these changes may mean for you and your family by speaking to a Court staff member or visiting:
