SELF-HELP CENTER - FORM PACKETS

The use of specific domestic relations 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 individually for a cost of 50 cents per page or in form packets that range from $5.00 to $40.00. The pro se litigant may 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.

Prior to coming to the Clerk's Office, you may find the form packet you need by accessing this 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
  3. Request that packet number

You may also purchase packets by mail.  Send your check or money order for the proper amount and a self-addressed stamped envelope along with your request. 

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