This classroom is here to help you through the process of changing or enforcing your Maine family law order. We hope it will help you feel more confident about dealing with the legal system.
Is this classroom for you?
You should use this classroom if:
- You already have a Maine court order in your divorce or parental rights and responsibilities case
- You need to change that order, or
- You need to enforce that order
How this classroom works
We've set up this classroom to reflect the most common paths for changing or enforcing divorce or parental rights and responsibilities orders in Maine. The numbered steps are in the order you will need to complete them.
Note: Some courts may have a different approach to these cases, but in this classroom we lay out the most general, basic steps that each case must go through. You should talk with the court clerk (link to glossary) when you start your case to find out how that court usually handles these cases.
We've created this classroom so you can walk through a process step-by-step and keep track of your progress. The general topics are numbered on the left side of your screen.
- Click on the name of the step you want to visit OR use the “next” and “previous” buttons at the bottom of each page to go between sections of the classroom.
- Click the gray checkmark next to each step when you’re done. It will turn green. Next time you come back to the classroom, you can pick up where you left off.
- OR read through the steps without checking them off just to learn more about the process. If you check something off by mistake, just click on the checkmark again to un-check it.
