Library of Pennsylvania Family Law Forms

Are you looking for sample forms related to family court in Pennsylvania? While there are several good resources to check - many of which are listed in our Pennsylvania Family Law and our Self-Help research guides - one option is the Library of Pennsylvania Family Law Forms book, published by The Legal Intelligencer and available at Jenkins.

The Library of Pennsylvania Family Law Forms is a print title, accompanied by a CD/flash drive that includes electronic versions of the forms. It provides sample forms for various domestic relations topics such as custody, paternity, protection from abuse, divorce, alimony, and more.

For example, sample custody forms include three different sample custody stipulations, a “Proposed Parenting Plan”, and a “Petition for Appointment of Counsel for Child”. Some of the included divorce forms are an “Answer to Divorce Complaint with Counterclaim”, a “Petition for Equitable Distribution”, a “Praecipe to Withdraw Divorce Complaint and Discontinue Divorce Action”, and sample marital settlement agreements. Typically, sample forms may be tweaked to fit particular situations.

The book also contains sample fee agreements, forms related to discovery, and more. Brief practice pointers are interspersed throughout.
