Default Rule 25: ORDER

I have in hand finalized minutes of settlements and the Judges endorsements. Now the ex says he is going to dispute the wording of the Final Order, which my lawyers drafted, ex is using Rule 25 to dispute this.

I suspect this is just another delay tactic on ex's part, but I would appreciate anyone's input if they have experienced the same. Thanks.

I have a friend who is disputing the draft court order that was drawn up by his ex's lawyer, based on the judge's endorsement.

Both sides have taken a completely different view of the endorsement. After many letters going back and forth with each side failing to get their points across, my friend has filed a "Notice Disputing Approval Of Order". This form can be found here (Ontario):

http://www.ontariocourts.on.ca/family_court/forms/

The parties/lawyers have set up a telephone conference call with the judge. The above mentioned form was filed so that the judge is aware, in advance, of the issues in conflict.

Can you please tell me what rule 25 is? Do you have a link where I can read more about this?
