Special Family Law Chambers Applications (Edmonton)

Court of Queen’s Bench Family Law Practice Note 2, effective October 1, 2015 states, in part, that any family law chambers application that will take longer than 20 minutes (but less than 60 minutes) should be set down for hearing as a “special family law chambers" application. Booking an application must be done through the clerk's office or by completing this Family Law Special Booking Form and submitting to edmfamily.specialapplication@gov.ab.ca.

  • The document below, showing "Family Law Specials (FLS) Available Hearing Dates" only pertains to booking a 20-60 minute application, and DOES NOT apply to applications outside the hearing length guidelines set out in Family Law Practice Note #2, effective October 1, 2015.
  • One hour Special Applications are limited to 1 or 2 substantive matters.  If your application will exceed 60 minutes, you must book it through the Special Chambers Coordinator at 780.422.2313.

To adjourn a 20-60 minute "family law special chambers" application that is scheduled to be heard in Edmonton, please call 780-643-1137 to speak with a Judicial clerk, who will ensure compliance with QB "Family Law Practice Note #2, effective October 1, 2015".

Please keep in mind that there may be periods of time when only two (2) matters will be scheduled, depending on availability of Justices. Every effort is made to accommodate all matters; however, there may be instances when it is not possible for all matters to proceed, and it would be prudent to check online availability on a regular basis, especially before agreeing on a date with opposing counsel.  The link further down this page opens a .pdf file that will display available hearing dates for the 20-60 minute “special family law chambers" applications being heard in Edmonton.

The preferred practice will be that counsel, counsel’s legal staff or a self-represented applicant (if such is the case) will review the dates that are available for booking an application before calling the clerks’ office. Once you have agreed on a date with the other party (must be consented to), that you wish to book (or adjourn to), please use the booking form.  If you do not have access to the Family Law Special booking form, you may phone the clerk’s office at 780.643.1137 for assistance in booking an application.

Deadline dates are outlined in PN #2.  The clerk’s office no longer maintains a list of the deadline dates.  Individual parties are required to review and comply with the deadline date criteria in PN #2.   

PLEASE NOTE: Once your application is booked on the FLS Calendar, you must file your application documents with the FLS clerks' office as soon as possible (but no later than the filing deadlines indicated in PN #2) in order to secure your application hearing date.
