FORM PACKETS - SELF-HELP CENTER

The use of specific domestic relations and guardianship forms is mandated by the Washington State Legislature.  All parties in family law cases must use these forms.  Forms may be purchased from the Clerk's Office in form packets that range from $5.00 to $40.00. You may also find it helpful to seek the Family Court Facilitator's assistance when selecting forms, reviewing completed forms and answering questions regarding forms, court procedures or community resources.

A Self-Help Center is available at the Family and Juvenile Court Clerk's Office to assist you in selecting the proper forms for your situation.  The form packets include step-by-step instructions, along with the proper forms to process your case. All forms are available for purchase at the front counter.

Packets may be purchased at the Clerk's Office or by Email.  Locate the packet by accessing the On-Line Self-Help Center below.  In the left column of this page, there are categories listed of packet we have available. Read the first two pages of any packet you select to determine which instructions fit your situation.  Once you have found the packet that best fits your situation:

  1. WRITE THE PACKET NUMBER DOWN
  2. Come to the Clerk's Office at the Family and Juvenile Court, OR
  3. Send an email to County_Clerk@co.thurston.wa.us
  4. Request the packet number you need

When purchasing by email, please provide us with the packet number you have chosen. We will reply with the amount of the packet and where to make payment. Once payment is made, the packet will be emailed to you.

Packets are non-refundable, so be sure you have selected the proper packet number.
