Family Forms Clinic
By appointment only. No walk-ins. Please call (813) 864-2280 Option #2 to schedule an appointment. Clinics may be canceled on short notice. All appointments are virtual.
The Family Forms Clinic is a free program to provide forms assistance to people representing themselves in family law cases in Hillsborough County.
Family law cases include divorce and equitable distribution, paternity, timesharing, parental responsibility, custody, child support, alimony, adoption, and name change cases. It does NOT include cases like guardianship, probate, foreclosures, criminal, or any appeals. We cannot assist you with any cases that are not family law or any out of county or out of state cases.
The Family Forms Clinic volunteers are only permitted to assist with the pro se Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Forms. Volunteers cannot provide you with legal advice and cannot represent you in court. Volunteers will not assist with financial affidavits, marital settlement agreements, child support guideline worksheets, or parenting plans. Volunteers may give you information about the process to file your case. All pro se litigants must file all their forms on their own with the appropriate office.
When calling to schedule an appointment, provide your Hillsborough County case number if you have one, a brief description of your Hillsborough County family law issue, what you need assistance with, and a contact number to best reach you.
Someone will contact you to schedule an appointment. Due to high call volume, it may take up to two weeks to receive a callback. If forms assistance is not appropriate for your family law issue, there is no guarantee you will be contacted to schedule an appointment.
All forms are sent digitally through email and not to your physical address. It may take up to one week to receive a digital copy of your completed forms after your scheduled appointment to the email address provided.
- Hillsborough County case number (should include “DR”).
- Any previous orders entered in the case.
- Any documents you've been served.
- Any documents relating to the family law case.
- Must have a valid email address to receive the forms.
- Must have a phone number to be contacted to schedule an appointment.
