Get Help with Legal Research

The instructions found at the beginning of most forms are not the only place where you can get information about how a family case works. You may want to look at other resources for more help. The Florida Statutes, Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure, Florida Rules of Civil Procedure, and other legal information (SEE LINKS BELOW) may be found online at the public library, or in a law library at your county courthouse or a law school in your area.

If you need a form that is not listed, you will need to review other resources or prepare your own motion. To do this, you will need to either consult the Florida Statutes and rules or seek the advice of an attorney. Local Family Law or Self-Help Centers and law libraries may be able to assist you.
