Guidelines for use of forms

The following guidelines apply to the use of these forms, whether you are using the user-friendly MS Word version or creating your own form based on the prescribed form.

When printing the form:

  • use good quality printer paper, 216 mm x 279 mm (8.5" x 11"),
  • print only on one side of the paper.

If you complete the form on a computer before printing it:

  • if using the MS Word version, do not change the format,
  • if that version is not available and you are creating your own form, make the format similar to the format of the prescribed form,
  • use double spacing between lines,
  • make sure the left hand margin is about 40 mm (1 ½ inches) wide.

If you complete the form in handwriting, make sure the handwriting is readable.

If the form requires a cover page, you must include it.

If the form is an affidavit:

  • the font must be size 14,
  • the pages must be numbered,
  • exhibits must be separated by numbered or lettered tabs,
  • the completed form, including exhibits, must be stapled or bound so that pages and exhibits do not become loose or separated.

If your form includes a dollar amount, use a decimal point to show dollars and cents (e.g. $250.00).

If you need legal advice, call a lawyer or Legal Aid.
