If you and your partner agree to change or end a final order for something that is not about just child support, you need to fill out:
- Form 15A: Change Information Form, and attach a copy of your existing order or agreement.
- Form 15C: Consent Motion to Change, which sets out the new terms you and your partner agree to. You and your partner have to sign the form in front of a witness. You can't witness each other’s signatures.
- Form 14B: Motion Form, where you list the orders you're asking the court make.
- Form 25: Order, where you list the orders you’re asking the judge to sign.
- Support Deduction Order, if the change is about support.
- Support Deduction Order Information Form, if the change is about support.
- Confirmation of Assignment form, to find out if your support payments go through an agency such as Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program.
- Statement of Arrears Form, to find out the amount of unpaid support.
- Stamped envelopes addressed to you and your partner if you want your order mailed to you. Otherwise you can pick it up from the court or have it faxed to you.
If your child support or spousal support payments go through a social services agency, such as Ontario Works (OW) or the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), you may have to serve the Ministry of Community and Social Services. Serve your documents on the Ministry of Community and Social Services below explains how to do this.
You must file your completed documents at the court. You can file your documents with the court online or in person. File your court forms and documents below explains how to do this.After your documents have been filed, the court clerk gives them to a judge to review and make an order.
Usually you and your partner don’t need to appear in person before the judge. This is because you and your partner both agree to the changes.
The court clerk sends a certified copy of the signed order to you and your partner in the stamped envelopes you provided. They can also fax it to you, or call you to pick it up, if that’s what you prefer.
If the judge has questions for you or your partner, the court clerk will contact you with a court date or provide you with a copy of the judge’s endorsement that sets out any other steps you or your partner have to take.
