    HI Everyone

    Just wanted to give an update on my current situation. Served with Application July 5th , I responded to application with my Lawyer, Made offer to settle . Yesterday received their response to my response with no offer to settle.

    I guess the next stage is waiting for the case conference date?

    They are still seeking spousal support from date of separation and to have our agreement we did thrown out. The whole situation is so frustrating but I'm getting better on dealing with it.

    I was curious also on the form 10A that was sent it had the 2 areas I agree and I don't agree made by the Respondent . the boxes indicating a divorce and support for her was not X in ? but down in the other Does not agree with Enforcement of the Separation Agreement.

      Of course they want money and settlement without support from date of separation is not in their best interest. Expect couple more case conference and than trial.

        I guess at this point I'll just wait for the case conference date.
        I do have a Lawyer now and I was wondering if anyone could give me some good advice before my case conference.

          You can make a formal offer to settle before CC? I thought that was only something that can happen after SC.

            you might find this helpful:

            You can and should make OTS. Settle things out-of-court and save money and drama. Your lawyer would, of course, know about pertinent statements in the OTS (reply-by deadlines etc.).

              Our case conference is set for the end if this month. All disclosure has been made, NFP has been determined. I was thinking to make a formal offer to settle but didn't think it could be done before CC.

              I read here in someone's post to wait until after CC.

                  my formal offer to settle was provided at settlement conference.

                  I suppose you're offer to settle is inline to your application requests at the case conference, and therefore you're willing to accept everything that you are asking for, under the assumption that your requests are fully reasonable.

                  For me, my application requests were too generous and not agreeable to, so my offer to settle ended up asked for more than what was in my application, and ultimately, my application was amended to ask for more, and to be inline with my offer to settle

                  The whole point of a settlement offer is for the issue of costs. It is an adversarial system where one parent wins, and one parent loses. The loser will have to pay the winner's costs if the loser received an order that was similar or worst than the winner's offer to settle. In simpler words, if the winner received an order for an order in their favor as good as or better than their offer to settle, they can seek legal costs from you. It is rare the winner will get their full costs.

                  and remember, don't hate the players, hate the game, and don't go into court with attitude of knowing all this stuff. Just go in with attitude willing to comprise and settle the matter on terms that you believe are in your child's best interests.

                    Thanks Trinton

                    I will speak with my Lawyer once I get my case conference date. Do those get mailed to me or sent to my Lawyer regarding the case conference date?
