Reported Cases

Areas of Law considered in this case: - Family Law - Jurisdiction of the Provincial Court and the General Division - S. 107 of the Court of Justice Act, and s. 2(2) of the Family Law Act

Deronov v. Agathocli, [1994] O.J. No. 551

My client, the mother brought an application in the Provincial Division for an increase in child support for her high school aged daughter. The daughter was gifted musically. The daughter's father claimed that he had no money to pay increased child support since he had a wife, and other children to support.

It was discovered that the father had assets out of the country, and had made rrsp contributions, and investments in the wife's name.

The wife then brought an application to seize and freeze some of the father's assets, as security for child support. Some of these assets were out of the country, and some other assets were registered in the name of the father's new wife.

The jurisdiction of the two levels of court in which family law matters can be brought is the reason that there were two separate applications.

Since it made sense to have all matters decided in one court, at one time, I brought a motion on behalf of the wife in the General Division, to have the Provincial Division application transferred to the General Division.

The father's lawyer objected, saying the relevant legislation required that the motion should have been brought in the Provincial Division. Madam Justice Epstein agreed with the father's lawyer, and the General Division motion was dismissed. There had been no judicial interpretation of this aspect of section 2(2) of the Family Law Act to this point in time.

Needless to say the father was asked to consent to an order in the Provincial Division transferring that application to the General Division. He refused.

An order was obtained from the Provincial Division, and the proceedings continued, to a successful conclusion, in my client's favour.
