Amendment Feature


If you need to correct the notice of family claim after filing, the court requires that you follow a specific procedure. Accordingly, our Amendment Feature will guide you through the process of making the corrections according to the court procedure. See below for the conditions that require an amendment.



If you have found a mistake after filing the notice of family claim, it can be corrected with our amendment feature. An amendment is a court procedure that corrects the notice of family claim by filing it again.


This feature enables the amendment settings and generates an amended notice of family claim containing your corrections. But to make it official, the amendment must be filed in court, which is included. So, once the changes have been made, print and send us the document for filing in court.

White Glove Setup

This feature requires some configuration. However, with the white glove setup option, we’ll configure it for you. This option includes standard changes. For custom changes, please contact us for a quote.

Typical uses of an amendment are to correct:

  • your answer regarding a party’s legal name or
  • your answer regarding a party’s name on the marriage certificate or
  • a party’s surname if it would conflict with one of the above.

You do not need an amendment to correct the following:

  • the date of separation,
  • the date of marriage,
  • the place of marriage,
  • the birth date of a party,
  • the birth date of a child,
  • the name of a child, or
  • the status of a child.

If you need to change one of the above, please see Add-ons > Fact Change.

Considerations for sole divorce:
