Confirmation of your appointment

Thank you for booking your appointment to obtain

a judgment for custody and child support in visioconference.

Here you will find the various information

concerning the processing of your file

Documents required to obtain a judgment

To proceed with your file, you will need a photocopy of the birth certificates of both parties and  those of all your children in common for a first judgment. Birth certificates are not mandatory if you want to change a previous judgment.

All documents must be written in French or English. Otherwise, they must be accompanied by the original of an official translation prepared by a translator of the Order of Translators of Quebec.

According to the requirements of the court for a file with a dependent child, each of the two parties must, obligatorily for all, have in their possessiontheir last Quebec notice of assessment, the four pages of their last Quebec tax return and their last three pay stubs.These are three different series of documents.

If you are missing documents at the time of the meeting, there will be an additional management fee of $50 per missing document which will be added to the fees. If you would like me to order a document for you from the Directeur de l'état civil du Québec, the cost will be $150 (taxes and fees included).  Note that you can order your documents yourself, costing $34 to $66.

Time required to obtain a judgment

Depending on your judicial district, the judgment is generally rendered within two to six weeks. following the filing of all court proceedings. However, the Court is not bound by this deadline and it is possible that the judgment will be rendered more than six weeks after the filing of the proceedings, although this is very unusual.

Progress of the file to obtain a judgment in visioconference

First, you will have to complete a questionnaire concerning the relevant information in your file (one questionnaire for both parties). Then, you will have to pay a deposit to cover the costs and fees for your file. The payment of the fees must be made when you complete the questionnaire or at least 72 hours before the videoconference. Finally, you must send us a photocopy of all the documents required for your file, at least 72 hours before the videoconference. You will receive a reminder email to this effect which will indicate the required documents.

You and the other party will have to attend a single videoconference meeting of one to two hours, where the documents will be prepared, digitally signed and sworn.
