When is the Divorce Act ISO Process Used?

The Divorce Act ISO process is used when the interjurisdictional support provisions under the Divorce Act (federal law) are being applied and the case is going to be heard in the other province or territory where the respondent lives.  

In some cases, there may be options other than Divorce Act ISO that available to you. For example, the matter may be heard in the place where the applicant lives or in the place the respondent lives.

Cases where people live in different jurisdictions can be complicated. It is always recommended you obtain legal advice to discuss your options and which is best for you.  Click here for information about getting legal advice in Nova Scotia, including no- and low-cost services.
