Interjurisdictional Support Order - Forms and Guides

Below are the Interjurisdictional Support Order (ISO) forms and guides in PDF format. You can fill these out on your computer, or print them off and complete them. You will need the Adobe Reader© to use the forms. Click here to go to the Adobe website if you require this free software.

Forms filed in Yukon courts must be legible for the court registry to accept them. 

If you need instructions on how to complete PDF forms on-line or how to clear them from your computer’s cache, click here. Unless you have the full Adobe Acrobat program, you cannot save the completed document on your computer or network. The free Reader version of Acrobat cannot save files. Neither version can save forms on the web site.

When you have completed the forms, send them to the MEP office in Whitehorse.

If you are not sure what forms you need to complete please take a look at the Choosing which forms to use [117KB ] information booklet. We recommend that a lawyer assist you if you wish to make an application under the Interjurisdictional Support Orders Act.

Form A Guide A
Support Application/Support Variation Application (SA/SVA)

This form is required for all applications. This is the 'cover' for all information provided in a support or support variation application. It contains party identification information, the claims being made, legal authority, and case and family history. The SA/SVA provides a list of the ISO forms which might be included, other common documents, and a space for the claimant/applicant to describe other attachments.

Form A is the only form in the A-M package that needs to be sworn or notarized. All other materials are a part of this application form.

Form B Guide B
Identification Information

This form is required for all applications. The jurisdiction conducting a support/variation hearing requires enough information to locate and serve the respondent. This form accompanies all applications and assists the authorities. It is very important to complete Form B with as much accurate information as possible.

Form C Guide C
Evidence of Parentage

One of these forms is completed for each child who is the subject of a support application. The long check-boxed list contains the paternity presumptions, which are common in Canada and most other jurisdictions. The claimant/applicant is asked to assess whether the respondent is likely to agree to a finding of parentage, and to provide additional information if the respondent is not expected to agree.

Form D Guide D
Statements to Support a Declaration of Biological Parentage

If the person applying believes that the respondent will dispute parentage, or if none of the normal parentage presumptions exist, this form is required.

Form E Guide E
Child Support Claim

This is the basic child support claim. The claimant/applicant can seek the Child Support Guidelines table amount, or its equivalent in a foreign jurisdiction, and is directed to additional forms where the claim includes non-Child Support Guideline amounts and/or special expenses.

Form F Guide F
Request for Support Order
if Respondent does not provide financial information

ISO allows for the making of a support or variation order in the absence of the respondent’s financial disclosure, or if the respondent does not provide enough information. The person applying is encouraged to complete this form. A claimant or applicant with little or no information about the respondent’s circumstances must do some research, but if the respondent does not appear before the court, or does not provide financial information, an order can be made using information provided by the claimant. The form applies both to claimants and payor-applicants.

Form G Guide G
Request for a Child Support Order
different than Child Support Guidelines table amount

The claimant asking for a non-Child Support Guidelines order must use this form, and is directed to it in Form E. A payor-applicant must use Form I. Please see the instruction guide for help in completing this form.

Form H Guide H
Special Expense Claim

Form E takes the recipient claimant or applicant to this form when making a claim for special expenses. The instruction guide gives examples of the types of expenses, the need to prove them, and describes how to calculate annual amounts. The total amount is transferred to the claim in Form E.

Form I Guide I
Request to Pay Child Support
different than Child Support Guidelines table amount

This is the mirror-image version of Form G. This form is used when the payor-applicant is seeking to pay an amount different than the Child Support Guidelines table amount.

Form J Guide J
Support for Claimant / Applicant

This short form organizes the information in a claim for support by a claimant/applicant, such as a claim for spousal support. The instruction guide emphasizes that these types of support claims can be complicated, and do not follow an established formula such as the Child Support Guidelines, and that legal assistance or consultation may be helpful.

Form K Guide K
Financial Statement

Not all claims require a financial statement. Some, such as those claiming the basic Child Support Guidelines amount, do not require it at all, while other types of claims may require certain parts of the form. Claims made in other forms direct the party to this one, depending on the circumstances. The party must assess the likelihood of a claim for undue hardship by the respondent, for example, and is encouraged to include a financial statement if making such a claim at a court hearing would result in an adjournment and a subsequent request for more information.

Form L Guide L
Child Status and Financial Statement

Where a claim is made for support of a child over the age of majority, or a variation application to continue support for a now-adult child, Form G directs the party to this form. As with many of the other forms, this one organizes the information normally obtained to establish or maintain a claim.

Form M Guide M
Evidence to Support Variation of a Support Order

This form is used by applicants (both recipients and payors) seeking to vary an existing support order, or to terminate support.

Form N Guide N
Respondent's Answer to Application

This form is used by respondents (both recipients and payors) who have been served with a Notice of Hearing and who wish to have a say in the order the court will make on the request made by the applicant. The court can make an order if you do not go to court or file the necessary documents, and that order will be legal. If you want a say in the order the court will make, it is important to complete this form and file it in court.

Form O  
Request for Enforcement

Form O is not part of the support application, but should be completed by the applicant.

This form is not listed in the SA/SVA, but a claimant will be invited to provide the financial information known about the respondent. This form, together with Form B, will allow the enforcement program to begin its work when the order is made, rather than waiting for additional information from the transmitting jurisdiction.
