Amendments to the Matrimonial Property Act (now the Family Property Act) and the Alberta Rules of Court, which came into effect on January 1, 2020, have resulted in a number of new and revised forms to commence or respond to claims for division of family property in the Court of Queen’s Bench.
The new forms are available at: https://www.albertacourts.ca/qb/areas-of-law/family/family-law-forms .
It is the responsibility of litigants or their counsel to ensure that they are fully complying with the new requirements. However, to ensure continued access to justice for litigants, a grace period will be observed until March 1, 2020, before the requirement that the new and revised forms be used is strictly enforced.
