Default Going through self-rep in Halifax

I am going self-rep until I find a new lawyer in Halifax and I am scared.

I haven't done it, but it seems a lot of people have. Read up as much as you can and prepare. There is some good stuff to read at the top in the first forum:

Default Is this appropriate

It has been two weeks since I heard that I was being taking to Court - why, I have no idea as discussed in my previous posts.

I have tried to communicate with my ex - that didn't work out well. I tried to communicate with my ex's lawyer - no response. I tried to communicate with the Court Officer - rude response. Forget that.

The Court did go back and ask for information and I asked the Court to ask for additional information as well. So I am wondering where I no longer have a lawyer and don't qualify for legal aid, who do I contact to see if the date has been set down.

If everyone has your address you will be notified. If you don't have enough time to prepare your response you can attend court at the specified time and request a continuance. Keep documentation to prove when you received notice.

How do you know you are being "taken to court"? I'd ignore it until you are legally served notice.

Default Sent through previous lawyer

It was sent through previous lawyer. I have tried to explain to both my ex, his lawyer and the Court that I am completely willing to negotiate if they come to the table with honesty; but, I guess my ex and his new wife are determined to take me to Court. Oh well!!! I am seriously stupid when it comes to this s**t!!!

Well you have to get your shit together. File your defense or hire a lawyer to do it for you. IF you go to Provincial Court of Ontario under forms you can see what forms you have to fill out and file (as well as who you have to file with). Very straightforward. So you have 3 choices: a) retain a lawyer, b) fill out forms yourself, or c) do nothing which essentially means you agree with your ex.

Playing a victim, or stupid, or overwhelmed will get you no where. Sounds like negotiating time is over and they want resolution.

Done especially after the ridiculous letter that I received from his lawyer. Getting it notarized and sending it to the Court and to the lawyer.

All my paperwork and I don't appreciate having to take the day off of work to do it.

Hopefully I will get somewhere. Seriously it is time for them to move on and stop clinging to me by taking me into Court every six months.

My ex and his girlfriend spend much of their leisure time plotting and planning for upcoming useless litigation against me. I often wonder what they would have to talk about if we weren't divorced! I think my lawyer is actually finding it all quite humorous as the last time met up at court they shared a few laughs together. My ex is so stupid I think he assumes my lawyer just likes him! Of course my lawyer likes him - he makes lots of money off of his stupidity.

Maybe your ex will start a new family or something to keep em occupied - you can only wish! [IN MY OPINION]
