Who uses ISO?

Printer-friendly version

ISO is used when one party is living in Nova Scotia, and the other party lives outside of Nova Scotia, in one of the ISO reciprocating jurisdictions.

You will generally not use the ISO process if:

  • both you and the other party live in Nova Scotia
  • you are divorced from the other party
  • the parties agree for the matter to be heard in Nova Scotia or in the other jurisdiction, or the judge allows the matter to be heard in one of these jurisdictions
  • you are in the middle of getting divorced from the other party
    • if a divorce is already filed, you will deal with support issues as part of that proceeding
