Easy to find references on the use of Form 20:

Financial Disclosure | Pantalone Family Law in Ottawa Ontario

Quote:
Rule 20 of the Family Law Rules deals with questioning a witness and disclosure. Again, the basis for the rule is for the production of information and documentation, which is relevant to a party’s case and in the possession or control the other party, or a third party.
Form 20 relates to Rule 20 of the FLR. If a lawyer says it is about "child protection" you simply send them back copies of all the references that they should already know as a professional and thank them for the opportunity to educate them.

Quote:
A party may be questioned under rule 20 on a financial statement provided under this rule, but only after a request for information has been made under clause (11) (a). O. Reg. 114/99, r. 13 (13).
Lawyers should also check their practice notes in Ontario to!!!

Yeash... Lawyers will say anything to avoid disclosure...

Good Luck!
