How does it work?

Using Formily is a really simple, four-step process to downloading your completed Form E:

  1. We tell you exactly what documents and evidence you’ll need to complete the Form, saving you time and frustration

Who created Formily?

Formily is created by Alex and Sam - two specialist family lawyers who between them have completed hundreds of Forms E.

They saw just how complicated getting all the documents right for your first court hearing can be (and how much it can hang over a case if it goes wrong). They knew there had to be an easier way… and so Formily was born.
