Great suggestions guys but sadly, our court house has the trials on an "on call basis" and only has trial dates for certain times of the year. We are marked priority and likely will be up right away. We also don't find out the judge until a few days before the trial when you are called by the trial coordinator.

Could still watch motions with same judge or small claim and/ or criminal trials.

Or Family Law Trials at other courts. WD's is on Monday. Let's all go support him LOL.

Could lookup upcomming trials for next day here (Daily Court Lists)

I assume you've already read this trial guide: http://www.ontariocourts.ca/ocj/self...-trials/guide/

A DIY guide by WD after his 3rd trial wouldn't be bad.

I think maybe WD meant "stay away" from going to trial.

Best to you vocal father. You have a challenge ahead of you that's for sure! Did your ex ever go for any sort of mental health assessment through the years? What sort of witnesses are you bringing to your trial?
