LawFact of the Day: Civil Litigation

Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Thursday July 5, 2018.

Today we are talking about Civil Litigation.
Civil lawsuits in Ontario’s Superior Court are commenced by issuing a document known as a Statement of Claim. A Defendant who is served in Ontario must file a Statement of Defence within 20 days of service.

If a Defendant is served elsewhere in Canada or the US, a Statement of Defence must be filed within 40 days of service. If a Defendant is served outside Canada or the US, the Statement of Defence must be filed within 60 days of service.
