Announcement – Replacement of Family Docket Court with Family Chambers and Self-Represented Litigant (Applicant) Family Chambers – Fall 2024 Term

Apr 5, 2024

Effective September 3, 2024, the Court will no longer hear matters in Family Docket Court in Calgary and Edmonton. Matters that would otherwise be scheduled in Family Docket Court will instead proceed in Family Law Chambers or Self-Represented Litigant (Applicant) Family Law Chambers. This change is made possible in part by the Family Justice Strategy and the corresponding increase in pre-Court resources for family law litigants.

The replacement of Family Docket Court will require a number of changes to the Court’s posted Announcements, Notices and Forms. Further updates will be posted to the Court’s website as those changes are made.
