Hello I have a partner who is going through Family Court at the moment.
This site is amazing. I am looking forward to many more opportunities to get helpful information on dealing with Family Court.

I am amazed at the number of people who seem to be self represented in court.

Hello and Welcome. Family Court is a tiresome, expensive route to go for most of us. Has your partner self-rep'd before? It's best to have qualified legal representation imo, but many choose to self rep for (obvious) financial reasons. There certainly is a ton of information on this site for anyone involved in, or going towards litigation. Good luck

I agree this site is very helpful. I have been a lurker for almost a year and got great ideas from here. I learnt quite a bit about the legal family law system and now have joined to share my two cents

Ok folks i have a question? How do we find the form to request an extension on the thirty days allowed to respond to an application? I have had no success with my internet search.

Is there a way to file a response if there are not yet any taxes filed? My partner tried to file his response but was told that they can't be accepted without notice of assessments and income tax forms.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Unless your partner is self-employed, and his income tax is complicated, why not simply file the taxes? Do it online or mail at post office (and get a receipt). Provide the copy of the tax return, proof it was filed, along with T4's and you should be good to go.

He has been self-employed for the last year and a half. This is part of the problem I think?

Arabian do you have any ideas where I can locate the form to ask for the extension?

No I don't - what Province do you reside in (perhaps someone else on here can help you).

If in doubt go to your local court house and ask one of the clerks to help you.


If you are familiar with using spread sheet software (Excel for example) you could possibly help your partner by organizing his receipts and categorizing them according to type of expense. Does your partner have a bookkeeper, accountant or does he do his own record-keeping?

That is a good idea I will talk to him about it! We are in ON, he was told by the court clerk that the form is available online but I haven't been able to locate it. Maybe I need the actual form number?
