Probate and Family Court Forms

Big news from the Mass. Probate and Family Court Department! They have put many of their forms on the web, in a fillable format that allows users to fill in the form online and print it for filing. Right now, they have forms for divorce, guardianship of a minor, name change, child support, and a few other categories. According to their site, "forms will be added as they become available." While there are limitations (you can't save the filled-in form, and you can't file the form electronically), this is still a huge step toward making forms more accessible and user-friendly. Let's hope they serve as an inspiration to the other court departments!

Available forms are all linked by subject from our Legal Forms pages.
