Update your continuing record

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

<p><a href="" target="_blank">Rule 9: Continuing Record</a> tells you what a continuing record is and what documents you put into it.</p>
<p>The continuing record has every document you and your partner want the court to look at. It is kept in the court file at the courthouse.</p>
<p>The continuing record has 2 parts:</p>
<p class="indent">1. The endorsement volume has all the [glossary:3221]endorsements[/glossary] and [glossary:3215]court orders[/glossary] a judge makes in your case.</p>
<p class="indent">2. The documents volume has all the documents filed in your case by you and your partner. This includes Applications, Answers, Replies, affidavits of service, financial statements, motions, affidavits, and trial management conference briefs. It does not include the case conference brief or the settlement conference brief.</p>
<p>If you're the applicant, you start the continuing record and keep adding your documents to it. If you don’t have a lawyer, court staff can help you start it and help you add your documents to it.</p>
<p>If you're the respondent you add your documents to the continuing record your partner started. If you don’t have a lawyer, court staff can help you add your documents to it.</p>
<p>When you add a document to the continuing record, you also have to update the table of contents by listing each document you’re filing.</p>
<p>Make sure you keep a copy of every document you and your partner fill out. This allows you to keep track of your case yourself. You won’t have to go to the court to ask the [glossary:3262]court clerk[/glossary] to get your court file if you need to check something.</p>
<p>More information on the continuing record can be found in the Ministry of Attorney General’s <a href=" target="_blank">A Guide to Family Procedures, Part 5: Filing Documents</a>.</p>
