Change a Parenting Order

Apply to change the conditions of a Parenting Order.


You can apply to change your Parenting Order if you want to travel with your child but the other parent will not give you signed consent.

How to apply if the order is from Alberta

Step 1. Fill out the forms

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 has not gone to court

If you have not done either of these things, file your claim at any court in Alberta.

Note: If you do not come to court, the judge may make an order in your absence.

How to apply if an order is from outside Alberta

Make an application to have your order registered and enforced in Alberta by following these steps.

In the Originating Application Under the Extra-provincial Enforcement of Custody Orders Act info pack, fill out these forms:

  • Originating Application
  • Affidavit
  • Affidavit of Service

Step 3. File your claim

Bring the forms and certified copy to any court in Alberta to file your claim.
