The reasons for creating the new forms include:
The threshold criteria for using one version rather than the other pertains to the party’s annual gross income and total net assets being above or below $75,000. The Office of the Chief Court Administrator has approved these new forms in accordance with Practice Book Sections 25-30 and 25a-15, and they are to be used effective January 1, 2014.
When completed online, these forms are fillable with additional electronic functionality that permits the expansion or reduction in the size of certain selected fields of the forms. Hard copies of both new forms will be available at the Judicial District Clerks Offices and the Court Service Centers.
