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.

Family Law Fact: Even if you have sole custody of your children, unless a court order indicates you can relocate out of the area where the children reside in, you generally should not consider a move with your children without the other parent’s consent without learning your rights first. 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. To learn more about your mobility rights with your children call us today to consult with one four Toronto Custody Lawyers by tapping the Contact button in our bio.

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.

It’s been a while since we updated you on family law matters. That’s because we’ve been busy handling the court filings for all of our new clients during the pandemic whom could not file their applications or responding documents for family law issues such as custody, parenting, and support issues with the Ontario Court of Justice. Last week the courts announced an electronic platform allowing the filing and commencement of all new cases and matters in family law. Well done Ontario Courts! Our firm and clients appreciate the resumption of all of our access to justice! To commence an application or to respond to a family law application served on you, contact one of our Toronto Family Law Lawyers today by tapping the Contact button in our bio.

The courts may, for a variety of reasons, decide that a separated parent may only have access or parenting time with their child(ren) if such time is supervised by another adult or even, in some cases, a supervised access centre. During COVID-19 seeing children at supervised access centres or relying on 3rd parties to facilitate or supervise access may be difficult or impossible. Read our article posted today about such issues on our blog page by tapping our website address in our bio and then clicking on our Blog page or call one of our Toronto custody lawyers today by tapping the Contact link in our bio to learn more about your rights in relation to supervised parenting regimes.

COVID-19 family law update: The government of Ontario just released that individuals can expand their “social circle” and have “social gatherings”. We have immediately had family law questions on the distinction and the impact of this expansion on family law parenting schedules. We want to be clear that in the case of “social circles” everyone in your circle must agree to only take part in one circle and to continue to socially distance outside of this circle. “Social gatherings”
involve gatherings outside of your circle which require you to still socially distance 6 feet and engage with others outside of your home. The key to the “social circle”
is an agreement by all members not to engage in any non-socially distancing behaviour outside of the circle. Unfortunately this may mean that’s parents that are in parenting arrangements must continue ensuring that all members of their households continue to socially distance or decide with the separated spouse or partner to be in the same social circle between the children’s households and share the remaining members (out of 10) that may be in the circle between the two households that the children travel back and forth in. Keep in mind that a child may count as one of the 10 members of a circle. If you have concerns about your parenting arrangement and impact of this new regulation contact us today for a consultation by clicking the Contact button in our bio. .
