You will have to serve your ex spouse with the application to stop vary the court order ending the support.

You can send a letter stating that if your spouse consents to the order you will not seek your costs of the application. If your spouse consents then you do not need to attend court and this will be done over the counter. So it will not matter to you very much if she consents and you don't seek cost.

But if you to go to court you will seek your costs which you will get because you will succeed as your daughter is no longer entitled to child support.

Do you see what I mean?

I live in Edmonton Alberta she is in London Ontario how can I do that without taking time off my job I haven't worked in six months do to a motorcycle accident and cant aford the time off
Family Lawyer: Legal Ease, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

You can do all the paperwork from your home and contact the court with respect to being able to attend the motion by way of telephone conference. Most of the courts in Ontario can now accommodate that but not all of them so you should call and find out if this can happen. It is not likely that you will have to travel to Ontario.

Of course, the hope is that your ex-spouse will consent because there's no reason not to do so since the law is clear.

There must be some typos in your last post. Can you review it and correct them as I'm not sure what you

are asking.

What will happen if she dont consent to it
Family Lawyer: Legal Ease, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Then you have to appear for the motion but my point was that you can likely appear by way of conference call and argue before the judge that support would end because the child is no longer attending school and is an adult.
