The Supreme Court of Nova Scotia (Family Division)’s eCourt service is an online platform for judicial adjudication, decision making, case management and settlement conferencing. Developed in part with the assistance of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada and the National Family Law Program, the service:
is available province-wide;
is for matters involving counsel for both parties (the goal is to eventually include access for self-represented litigants);
is used to solve simple, discrete issues and case management; and
provides legal counsel the opportunity to engage in real time, online exchanges with a judge for dispute resolution.
Counsel interested in receiving training on the eCourt service or more information should email the eCourt Administrator at eCourtAdministrator@courts.ns.ca.
