We study the nonresonant three-body decays of B+ → Ds(*)-K+π+ and Bd → Ds(*)-K0π+. We find that these decays can provide the information on the time-like form factors of Ds(*) K. We also explicitly investigate Bd → Ds(*)-K*+ decays by discriminating the nonresonant contributions with the unknown Ds(*) wave functions being fixed by the measured mode of Bd → Ds-K+.
