Isn't that the issue?


Shouldn't the bench be held to account for enforcing the truth on sworn affidavits? Or worse, accepting lies in family court and giving a judgement based on lies? Is the...

I'd like to agree with you Rockscan, but it really hasn't been my experience so far throughout the various motions I've been involved in.

I personally blame the family law system. It is created and governed by the people who stand the most to gain from it... lawyers and the lawyers who become judges. It's a big conflict of interest and...

FRO Questions - (FRO Online)

Hi,

I recently registered for FRO Online, which it's a good first step. I am at least able to get a statement of account.

My problem is that it's very cryptic and probably requires the case...

Rockscan,


I completely agree that reform is required and that things need to be clearer. For example, when do you re-calculate CS? In my case, it wasn't stipulated and my ex wanted to back date...

Agreed, the judge appears to have just relied on oral arguments and my lawyer didn't say much.


If you ex is the payor and stopped paying (no reason provided) I don't imagine he will win. You...

It can get weird with S7 in my experience (I'm the payor). But often the payor needs to provide "consent". In my case, even though my ex is the recipient she simply ignores my requests to share...

I agree with you and agree it's not fair. I can just say that I requested disclosure and never received anything. The income was accepted at face value and as a result, I ended up paying her lawyers...

The process is archaic IMO. Child Support is supposed to be dynamic. If you are to do it the "right way", you submit a motion to change (form 14B mentioned above) and sign it on consent. Have a judge...
