  • How to count days? (Reply to Answer)

    Situation:
    1. I have filed an Application for a Simple Divorce. (I am the Applicant)
    2. Spouse has submitted an Answer. (Spouse is the Respondent)
    3. I wish to submit a Reply.

    The Ontario.ca website says that the Applicant has 10 days to file a Reply. The website is not clear if it is 10 business days or 10 calendar days.

    Is it 10 business days or 10 calendar days?

This can be expedited for reasons of adultery or cruelty, where a judge won't make you wait out a year if your ex committed cruelty or is cheating on you.

      Otherwise, as long as you are separated for 1 year, it is pretty much automatic.

      More than likely a case of wanting to have the last word. If itís a simple divorce there should have been no need for a response or reply.

        Unless...

        There is no separation agreement and there are children and no CS is outlined in the application etc... Then, a reply stating that there is no CS being paid, no SS, the assets haven't been equalized... etc... That is why there is a REPLY ability in a divorce request... even after 1 year of sep. :O

        Every day there are hundreds of "simple divorces" filed where there is no equalization, CS, access, custody, SS, etc... attached to the divorce. Divorces are only granted by a judge until all matters are settled or decided. :O

          If it is 10 business days that is different than the rules.




          The rules state that if it is over 6 days then it is calendar days and if the final day lands on a holiday or weekend it is the next business day after the calendar days have expired.
