    Form 6B: Affidavit of Service, is the formal way to tell the court that you have served all other parties.

    Because 6B is an affidavit, it has to be commissioned by a notary public or lawyer.

    Download the form, fill it out and send it to them via fax do not make any other calls to them to tell them not to.
    That will save you $150, at least.

    Of course they want to do it.....they want you to employ them at $300/hr for remedial work.

    Instruct the lawyer not to fill it out.

    Yes. You need to 'serve' your former lawyer, as well as the opposing party with the Form 4. And then file the Form 4 with a 6B showing you've served the lawyer / OC.

    Other posters are correct that the court staff can commission the 6b at no charge.

    You cannot go to 'another court' in the same city. It must be the same court on the paperwork.

    Yes it has to be the court the case is at so it can be added to the file.

    It has to be the court the case is filed at ? Can I go to a court of the same level in another city to do it?

    Hi,

    I have filled out the "Notice of Change in Representation" (form 4) to terminate the current lawyer, and submitted it thru https://www.ontario.ca/page/file-fam...cuments-online, but received an email saying rejected because of missing Form 6B: Affidavit of Service, which needs to be signed before a lawyer, notary public or commissioner for taking affidavits. I have already sent an email to the lawyer with form 4 signed, do I really need to submit Form 4 online with Form 6b signed? Or the lawyer will send something like Form 4 to court to remove him from counsel of record at court? Thanks!
    When I did it I do not recall having to fill out a form 6B however......

    You do this yourself, the lawyer does not need to do anything and if they do they will charge you.

    Are you able to bring it to the court counter?

    Send the form via fax (email may do) to the lawyer.
    Bring the fax and sending information to the counter.
    If you need a 6B they will sign it for you, no charge.
