Warning – Documents undergoing revision

With the exception of My protection mandate, all the documents in this collection are currently being revised.

The documents can still be used to file an application, but because of the legislative changes, some of the models they contain are no longer valid. In addition, the publications may fail to list some of the documents you need to include with your application.

For this reason, before filling out your application, you should contact the court clerk to check that you have all the information you will need to complete the process.

In addition, before filing your application at the court office, you should check with the court clerk that it contains all the required information and documents.

The documents are no longer sold by Les Publications du Québec but can be downloaded free of charge from the Justice website.
