Adoption, Guardianship of a Minor, Child Name Change and Maine's Home Court Act: When, where and how to file the Jurisdictional Affidavit
What is the Maine Home Court Act? The Home Court Act is a Maine law passed in 2016. It is meant to prevent more than one case about the same child from happening in different courts. Courts use a “Jurisdictional Affidavit” to find out about all of the cases involving a child and determine where your case should be addressed.
If you're being threatened with a foreclosure of your home, you are not alone. Here are some tools to help: if you are having trouble keeping up with your mortgage payments, if you are already receiving threatening notices from your loan servicer, or even if you are already facing foreclosure.
On this page you can find forms that you might need to handle your own foreclosure case. For more detailed information, see Can I Save My Home from Foreclosure? and Home Mortgage Foreclosures.
The Court has recently updated many family law forms! We are in the process of updating our forms, to match. In the meantime, please check with the Maine Court's website for the most up-to-date forms.
