In a July 31, 2013 press release posted on its website, the Probate and Family Court announced the release of new forms and informational material as a result of changes to Rule 412 of the Supplemental Rules of the Probate and Family Court. Links are provided to the Rule as well as to the new forms and informational material.
"Effective August 1, 2013, Rule 412 will allow parties to jointly request modification of a judgment or temporary order of the Probate and Family court where the parties are in agreement, the agreement is in writing, and all other requirements of the Rule are met. The changes to the Rule will allow the Probate and Family Court to handle more cases administratively."
