PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT ANNOUNCES AMENDED PRACTICE ON
The Probate and Family Court has amended Uniform Practice XXXIII. Standards for Computer-Generated Forms. The Court has received numerous complaints since the change was made last year in allowing the filing of Financial Statements and Child Support Guidelines Worksheets on white paper. Requiring that the forms be printed on colored paper will assist our staff and judges in identifying the forms in the case folder and that they remain unavailable for public inspection. Colored forms will also make the forms more readily identifiable to lawyers and litigants.
