Protection Orders On Notice and Family Docket Court

Jul 6, 2020

Commencing immediately, any applications on notice for a Restraining Order or Queen’s Bench Protection Order may proceed directly to Family Chambers without having to first attend in Family Docket Court.

A Family Chambers date can be obtained from the Clerk’s office. The application and supporting Affidavit must be filed in accordance with the email filing instructions here and served on the opposing party.

Applicants who do not have access to technology may continue to file in person.

The Applicant may ask the Court to shorten the time for service on the Respondent where the circumstances require.

The process for applications for protection orders without notice was posted to the Court’s website on June 20, 2020 here.
