Navigating Interjurisdictional Support Orders [WEBCAST ONLY] 

Dec. 10, 2021

OBA Family Law PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM (ET)

What are the key issues to consider when a support payor or recipient does not live in Ontario?  For support recipients, there can be numerous avenues available and processes required to obtain and enforce child and spousal support orders.  For support payors who are ordered to pay pursuant to an extra-jurisdictional support order, what are the crucial factors in determining whether to accept or contest the order and how do you contest the order?

Join our knowledgeable faculty as they provide critical information on how to navigate support matters that cross provincial and national borders.  This session will cover:

  • Legal frameworks: Interjurisdictional Support Orders Act, Family Law Act and Divorce Act
  • Representing an Ontario payor
  • Representing an Ontario recipient
  • Helpful insights from the Family Responsibility Office on enforcement of orders

Whether you are representing an Ontario payor or recipient, build your family lawyer toolkit with this vital program to ensure that you are choosing the most efficient path to resolving your client’s interjurisdictional support issues.
