Thanks Tayken,

There's another cost award that, after today, will be overdue.

This motion had nothing to do with child- or spousal support. Can that also be collectible by FRO?

If not, what avenues are open for collection of non support related costs?

Small Claims court. Its quite easy to file a claim and as long as you have your documentation in place. You should be successful. I took someone to small claims over an insurance claim they did not pay. It cost me $75, took a couple of weeks to get to court and done.

Are you positive about small claims court for a family law cost judgement?

Well its not for section 7 expenses or CS is for costs so I don't see why not. My experience was for an insurance issue. Someone hit my car, agreed to lay for,the cost of repair to keep it,out of their insurance and then I presented the bill, which had been agreed upon in writing. She refused to pay. So why not small claims for judge ordered costs.

hmm not sure about that. You already have a judgement against the person for costs. Its just the collection of the money owing that's the issue.

The two times I have been to small claims court was to prove someone owed me money (both times I won)then had a judgement issue against them in small claims. The one paid right away, the other I had to go one step further to enforce but they ended up paying.

Not sure if you would have to use the same venue that gave you the judgement to collect the money.

it was just a case of serving more papers that I was looking to enforce judgement by seizing their assets etc. Those papers had to be filed where they worked. It scared them enough so they ended up paying. If that would not have worked then I would have had to court in Toronto somewhere. Its just lots of paperwork.

Default Costs Order Being Ignored

From what I have been told by a duty counsel was that when I get the costs award have it ordered as child support and FRO will. Garnish that. With child support it doesn't hurt anyone because it doesn't affect the tax return. I am soon going to trial and this is what I have been told. Has anyone else heard such thing? I think it's brilliant idea for actually receiving the costs!

My understanding is that FRO is only going to collect costs awarded in an action dealing with support. My costs were award from a non-support related motion.
