COVID-19 Updates: State of public health emergency declared.
For a third party or a parent that’s not a guardian, a Contact Order:
- sets out their allowed contact with the child – in-person visits, phone calls, letters, etc.
- doesn’t give them responsibilities and rights over the child
How to apply
Step 1. Fill out the forms
Claim - Family Law Act (0.1 MB)
Statement - Contact (0.1 MB)
Affidavit of Service - Applicant (0.1 MB)
Speak with a court forms information coordinator if you need assistance.
Step 2. File your order
Do this at the same court, in the same location, where you’ve either:
- already been to court with the other party
- started any court action that hasn’t gone to court
If you haven’t done either of these things, file your claim at any court in Alberta.
Note: If you don’t come to court, the judge may make an order in your absence.
