Reported Cases

Areas of Law Considered in this case: - Family Law - Variation of Support - Child Support - Divorce Act - Child over the Age of Majority - Family Law Act, Family Support Plan Act

Orzeck v. Orzeck, [1995] O.J. No. 3443

My client, the mother of four children applied for an increase in child support for the three children who were still in high school and attending university. This was the first court appearance after the divorce some thirteen or so years earlier. I did not handle this client's divorce. Child support had been agreed upon in a separation agreement, and so it was necessary to prove a material change in circumstances in order to have the child support varied under s. 33 and 34 of the Family Law Act.

There was still tremendous acrimony between my client and her former spouse, which was evident from their demeanour both in the courtroom and in the witness stand.

The father had not had much contact with the children after he left the family to continue a relationship with one of his co-workers. He had made the child support payments required under the separation agreement, however. The father requested that the Court order that his child support obligations cease.

Responsibility for the father's lack of contact with the children was the subject of heated cross-examination of both parties, and all of the children.

At that time there was a conflict in the caselaw as to whether a father's obligation to continue support of children over the age of majority would continue if the children were not in contact with the father.

The trial judge ordered that the father did not have to pay child support for the three children over the age of 21, as he had had no meaningful relationship with them for over eight years.

However, the trial judge increased the child support payable for the youngest child until she reached 21.
