ISO stands for the Nova Scotia Interjurisdictional Support Orders (ISO) Act. This is the law that is generally used for getting and changing (‘varying’) support orders involving Nova Scotians and parties who live in other jurisdictions, where provincial or territorial laws (not the federal Divorce Act) are being applied. It also provides a process for registering a support order in Nova Scotia for the purposes of enforcement when the order has been made in a reciprocating jurisdiction.
ISO Forms and Guides were updated effective February 12, 2018.
Both ISO applicants living in Nova Scotia (filing outgoing ISO applications) and ISO respondents living in Nova Scotia (responding in Nova Scotia to an ISO application filed elsewhere) will use the new forms as of February 12, 2018.
The Forms are available in fillable PDF. There are separate Guides for each form. The Guides provide information on how to fill out each form correctly.
