Question & AnswerWhat is a continuing record and how do I prepare one?
3. Add documents
Usually you the original copy of a document with the court. You make copies for you and your partner.
Documents are added to the continuing record after they are served on the other person.
Documents are filed in chronological order, with the most recently filed documents at the back. In most cases a numbered tab must identify each document filed. Tabs must be in sequential order.
Update the table of contents
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.
Court staff can help you figure out where each document goes in the continuing record.
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 to get your file if you need to check something.
