Probate Court Forms

The Probate Court has amended its Uniform Practice XXXIII to again require Financial Statements and Child Support Guidelines Worksheets be printed on colored paper. Both short and long Financial Statements should be printed on pink paper. The Child Support Guidelines Worksheets should be printed on yellow. According to their press release, "requiring that the forms be printed on colored paper will assist our staff and judges in identifying the forms in the case folder and that they remain unavailable for public inspection." The change is effective April 7, 2008.

This and other Mass. court rules can be found at Mass. Rules of Court, and the forms at Mass. Legal Forms.
