Hello, thank you for the question.

Does the court order specifically say that the parties much exchange annual income information? Or does it say that the payor must give the information to the support recipient?

It specifically says to exchange the information (T-Slips and completed returns / notice of assessments). There are extraordinary expenses (Section 7 in NS) involved so proportional shares need to be calculated.

Right, just checking.

So if one party doesn't comply with the order the other can bring them back to court on a contempt motion. The court can order a fine, or even jail time, if the uncomplying party is found in contempt.

However, judges don't like finding people in contempt because it doesn't really solve anything. Judges just want people to follow the orders. And a contempt motion has to be done very specifically and carefully, don't try to do it without some legal help.

Anything else to discuss?
