Service of Family Court documents can be a very serious issue which can significantly impact an applicant or respondent’s right to have a family law matter heard. Service is meant to give notice to all parties in a case of all documents you intend on using or relying on in your court proceeding. Without “effective service” you cannot rely on the document in Court and this is a very technical requirement. Call us today to speak to one of our Toronto Family Law lawyers about filing your court documents in accordance with the Family Law Rules.

What two courts in Ontario can hear family law matters? The answer is: the Ontario Court of Justice and the Superior Court of Justice. These two Courts have different jurisdictions or authorizations to hear and preside over different matters in Family Law. Commencing a proceeding in the wrong Court can cause significant delays in your family law matter but we know that it can be a confusing process. For more information about what Court your family law matter must be commenced at, check out our blog post on our website today or call one of our Toronto Family Law Lawyers today by tapping the contact button in our Bio! We are here for you!

Happy Pride month! The Library of Congress provides a nice history of how Pride celebrations came to be if you want to learn more about this monumental celebration. The Library notes that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as "Gay Pride Day," but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the "day" soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events celebrating equality. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.

Child custody decisions related to schooling continue to make their way to the Courts in the second wave of the pandemic in Toronto. In most recent cases the Courts focus on the concept of “unacceptable risk”, setting out in clear terms what exactly the courts will deem to be factors related to a risk that is overall unacceptable when deciding if a child will physically attend school, when there is a dispute on the issue between separated parents. For more info check out our blog post by tapping our website link in our bio to read the most recent of a three part blog series on the issue or call us today to speak with one of our Toronto child custody lawyers.

Family Law Fact: The Maximum Contact Principle requires maximum contact by children to each parent post-separation. One parent may not unilaterally withhold children during and after separation and until a custody agreement or order is made there should generally be a presumption of joint custody or decision making.

The issues of travel and mobility are ancillary issues your lawyer should be addressing separately when negotiating custody and parenting arrangements or addressing these issues with the Courts.

Family Law Fact: Can Cohabitation Agreements or Marriage Agreement (aka Prenuptial Agreement) make reference to the custody, parenting, and support of existing or unborn children? The answer is generally, no. Where children are concerned, decisions or agreements related to the custody, parenting and support of children should be reached at the time of separation and any agreement or sections of the agreement which address these issues prior to separation could likely be unenforceable.

Family Law Fact: Cohabitation Agreements set out the rights and obligations of unmarried couples when they choose to live with one another without legally entering into a marriage. Given that couples are deemed to be “common law spouses” after 3 years of living with one another, for the purposes of family law, certain rights and obligations arise after 3 years of cohabitation even without marriage. As such, some couples choose to enter into a carefully crafted Cohabitation Agreement to either affirm some rights under the law and set out their parameters, or to limit them. To learn more about your rights during cohabitation, tap the Contact button in our bio to speak with one of our Toronto Family Lawyers.

COVID-19 Procedural Fact: Lawyers may meet with their clients virtually during the pandemic, by #zoom or other online platforms, to sign original documents such as cohabitation agreements, marriage agreements, and separation agreements by way of what we call “in counterpart” signing. This means each party to the agreement or legal document can sign the document separately and the document can be witnessed virtually. Our lawyers watch and witness our clients sign legal documents virtually and the lawyer also signs the document separately from the client attesting to acting as a witness. Then, the client sends the originals of the signed agreement or legal document to our law firm and we put all of the signature pages together with the agreement or legal document and Voila! A legal document is entered into and is fully enforceable! Call us today to speak with one of our Toronto agreement lawyers by taping the Contact button in our bio.

Back to school for kids during COVID-19 can be a scary experience and we empathize with that. We’ve been a bit silent lately as we have been busy dealing with these issues where often, one separated parent disagrees with the other separated parent’s decision to enrol their children for in-person attendance in Ontario schools. This has caused some great upheaval leading to some urgent motions seeking Judges to make decisions instead of the parents. For a great blog article on the issue please tap on our web link in our bio and click our blog page. For more information, please call us today to talk to one of child custody lawyers, by tapping our Contact button in our bio for matters related to disputes around your children’s education during COVID-19.
