COVID-19 Family Law Decisions » B-M. v. M.M., 2020 ONSC 1958



Source: AFCC Ontario

In this decision, a conference was conducted by telephone by the Honourable Justice Kiteley following service of motion materials by the Applicant Mother.

At issue was whether a motion regarding parenting, child and spousal support was urgent within the meaning of the Chief Justice in the Notice to the Profession announcing the suspension of regular court operations and whether it was urgent within the meaning of the Family Law Rules such that a motion may be heard before a case conference.

The parties had two children, with one living with each parent. The children did not have regular contact with each other or the other parent.

The Respondent Father offered an uncharacterized payment to the Applicant Mother, but she was in temporary accommodation until the end of April 2020 and in order to secure a more permanent residence, she would need to show income.

Justice Kiteley determined that the parenting and support issues were urgent, scheduled the motion to be conducted by telephone conference and provided a timeline for the delivery of materials.
