parties

Parties are the people or organizations directly involved in a court case, contract, agreement, or other legal matter. For example, a party can be one person or a group of two or more people, a corporation, or an agency like the Family Responsibility Office or Children’s Aid Society.

In most family law cases, both partners are parties but the children are not parties.

In most child protection cases, the Children’s Aid Society and the parents are parties, but the children are not parties.
