As other attorneys have noted, there may or may not be a form available, but you will want to address the factual background of your case as well as any evidence you would like to produce or witnesses you would like to have testify. As other attorneys have noted, it may be better to hire counsel in such a case.
There is no form, but Rule 1915.4-4 lists what must be included in it. Specifically, 1515.4-4(b)(1)-(3).
The above answer is intended solely for general informational purposes and does not create an attorney client relationship. You should consult with an experienced attorney regarding all of the details of your particular situation before taking action.
check your local county's web site.
Many have self help sections for Divorce, Custody, Domestic Relations.
I agree with attorney Noble that it would be best to have an attorney draft it for you.
Once you retain an attorney, he or she should be able to properly draft your pretrial statement in conformance with the court's requirements, and with the facts of your case. I would not recommend trying to draft your own pretrial statement, especially if you will have an attorney to represent you. Best of luck.
These comments are NOT legal advice and should NOT be considered legal advice. There is NO attorney-client relationship established between myself and anyone on this forum or website. There is NO attorney-client relationship established through the exchange of information on this website. Each legal matter is unique. Nothing can replace consulting directly with an attorney who is licensed to practice law in your jurisdiction.
