About this pathway

This guided pathway gives you a downloadable PDF action plan to help you get the court orders you need to sort out your family law issues. This pathway will help you choose which court to go to and decide whether you need interim (temporary) or final orders.

Your action plan is based on your answers and gives you the best available resources for your situation. You'll get links to online step-by-step guides to help you through the court process, and in-person legal help.

You might not need to go to court. Use the Make a separation plan pathway to help you decide if you can deal with your family law issue without going to court.

This pathway takes about 15 minutes to complete. Your answers are anonymous. See our privacy policy for more information.
