For a guide to helping you file or respond to an ISO application or an interjurisdictional application under the Divorce Act, click here.


REMEMBER: The ISO process is generally only used for situations where the other party lives outside of Nova Scotia. A similar process, often called "ISO-like" or interjurisdictional application under the Divorce Act can generally apply to parties divorced in Canada where the applicant and respondent live in different provinces/territories within Canada.  If both you and the other party live in Nova Scotia, neither of these processes is likely the correct process for your application. If you're not sure whether or not you need to file ISO documents, or which ones to file, please speak with a lawyer for advice.
