A final guide: Organizing your continuing record
1 Attachment(s)
Ok so people have asked me for this information and I share here as a discussion on this topic.
Lets not talk about other issues here simply how to organize your continuing record.
See my guide attached if you like what I've written then please add to my reputation.

Thats it for now.

No it is not oink. You can do one of two things. Keep a list/table of exhibits you've already entered under what affidavit/motion/tab etc. You can then cross reference back to that exhibit in later documents. Judges might not like to have to thumb backwards though. A better way about it (and I saw my lawyer do this) is put in the document as a new exhibit with the added documentation. Even though you're not supposed to put in exhibits already in the continueing record I think it is overlooked to save time in whatever motion is at hand.

As well you can have a number of different documents as a single exhibit. You'd have a blank paper listed as exhibit "A" with several medical records for example. You could list the documents on the first page so the judge knows what he is looking at. Only the First page would need to be notorized as well saving time.

Court is like poker, don't tell the other side what you have until you have to.
Keep your cards close.

The case conference is without prejudice. You WILL NOT enter any evidence at a conference. Hence, unless there are orders on consent at the conference, the Conference documentation doesn't for part of the contueing record. You will use your evidence in motions to support your position of your motion/pleading. Don't forget you don't know what is going to come out of the mouths of the "other side". People/lawyers aren't always honest and frank in the courts.

Short answer: to get your evidence into the continueing record, you have to first file for a motion. What would be the purpose of entering evidence where not motion is at hand?

This is not correct. Only the settlement conference is without prejudice.

Settlement discussions at the case conference should not be brought up later, however.



(23) No brief or evidence prepared for a settlement conference and no statement made at a settlement conference shall be disclosed to any other judge, except in,
(a) an agreement reached at a settlement conference; or
(b) an order. O. Reg. 114/99, r. 17 (23).

The case conference brief would form part of the continueing record only if orders are made on consent. That is my understanding anyways.... Family Law Rule

(22) Case conference briefs do not form part of the continuing record unless the court orders otherwise and shall be returned at the end of the conference to the parties who filed them or be destroyed by court staff immediately after the conference. O. Reg. 89/04, s. 8 (5).

That was my overall point with not putting in evidence within a Case Conference brief.
