Child and spousal support are the cornerstones of most family law files, and mastery of this area is critical. A recent judgement from the OCA has shifted the landscape. Ensure you are up-to-speed on the changes and impacts.

From OsgoodePD’s Recent Developments and Complex Issues in Child & Spousal Support, this session will review the important issues raised in the Ontario Court of Appeal’s reasons in M. v. F., 2015 ONCA 277, including:

  • The dangers of protracted litigation
  • Managing client expectations
  • The difficulty of obtaining significant costs at the Court of Appeal
  • The value, if any, of critique reports of section 30 assessments and reports under the CLRA
  • The Court’s movement away from the “custody” and “access” following the growing trend away from the adversarial approach
  • The Court’s growing skepticism of complaints about the sufficiency of reasons
