Not real soon. Settlement conferenece is scheduled in July.
This is my second time through, however. My ex has filed a motion to change, and I intend goto trial. The first time I settled hopping to reduce conflict and make things easier for our son.
Conflict has increased exponentially since settlement, and I'm sick of it. So I intend to goto trial.

In settlement we agreed on a lower CS payment (based on previous years income), then table would have indicated on the job that I had just recently landed.
Both her an her lawyer were informed of my new wage. Under advisement of her lawyer she withdrew from FRO as it was understood CS would increase substantially the following year, and FRO is fraught with error. So to make things easier with the coming CS payment change - we would just skip them.

Now she has filed at court stating she was unaware of the new wage- and wants retro-active catch up payments.

In addition - she is seeking to reduce my access time.

My response was for me to have full custody. I would prefer shared custody - but she moved an hour out of the city during our first bout of litigation. So unfortunately that is impossible. The boy cannot attend school in two seperate districts.

I've also asked to not be responsable for the back pay - as she was in agreeance at the time, and had the benefit of counsel in making her decision.

And you have proof of this correct?

Easily rebutted if you have the notification that you sent to her/her attorney regarding the agreement to withdraw from FRO and to base support on the commonly accepted methodology.

So she uprooted the kids from the school district/etc without notice...did you file with the courts to have the children returned to their district?

I think I look for that book. But as I remembered it was about civil litigation and in US. But probably still better than nothing.

I was thinking about something specific for Family Law in Canada. From my understanding it has nothing to do with Family and for sure with law

My stage of preparation - I MY GOT WHAT I AM GOING TO DO! )) As I said I completely lost.

I am thinking to find some lawyer who would give me consultation. Direct me. Tell me what to do 1. 2. 3. and if I will be able to pay for to go through my papers.

Anyone have any experience with such schema? Any recommendations?

Thank you

PS: but first I have to get rid of enormous headache what drive me crazy. May be have to start drinking ? ))
