Resources – Family Proceedings

This page provides information to people who have a family law case in the Superior Court of Justice, whether they are representing themselves or have a lawyer.  Because the Court must remain impartial regarding any case that may come before it, the Superior Court of Justice cannot provide legal advice; however, we are happy to provide you with the resources below and direct you to resources available on other websites.

A Guide to Process for Family Cases at the Superior Court of Justice

The Superior Court of Justice has developed a guide to process that provides information to litigants about each step in a family case.

Please also refer to the Family Law Rules and the Superior Court of Justice’s Practice Directions.  See also the family law resource page for additional information.
