In a recent family law decision, Nychuk & Company lawyer David Flett successfully argued to obtain an award for his client of approximately double the court costs typically awarded in these types of matters, to be payable by the opposing party.

In giving reasons for awarding Mr. Flett’s client an increased amount of the typical costs, Mr. Justice Megaw praised both parties’ counsel for their exemplary professionalism, stating:

“Before embarking on my reasons, I want to specifically recognize the manner in which counsel conducted both their cases and themselves during this case. The litigation has been hard-fought since it was commenced in 2015. The most recent applications concerned fundamental issues affecting ongoing parenting and, specifically, the father’s ability to continue to engage in a meaningful way with the children. Despite the nature of the litigation, both counsel, while pursuing their clients’ interests, were unfailingly polite and professional with the court and, seemingly, with each other. They were continually interested in assisting the court to properly manage the litigation. In short, they acted in the best traditions of their profession in ensuring their advocacy, while resolute, was not influenced by the obvious emotion and turmoil being experienced by their clients. When advocacy is performed at such a high level, it is important the court recognize that and comment favourably upon it.”

Mr. Flett has been practicing Family Law since 1995, and is also a Qualified Arbitrator. When you and your family are thrown into the legal system, you need an experienced advocate to assist you to resolve the matter as efficiently and capably as possible.

In a situation where one parent struggled with addiction issues and the children’s safety was a significant concern, Kayla McKinnon was able to obtain an interim order for her client, that gave her the ability to make decisions in relation to the children without having to agree with the other parent. It was determined that the other parent needed to remain entirely drug free to not pose a risk to the children, as they had suffered due to their parents struggles. As such, a graduated parenting time plan was ordered with respect to the father, which started with limited supervised parenting time and was only to expand over the course of five to six months if he provided clean drug screens. If he failed to produce screens, his parenting time would not expand. If he failed any drug screen, it was ordered that her client would be justified in suspending parenting time. This interim order was granted so that the children would be safe and sheltered from their parents addiction issues.

Kayla McKinnon also assisted in obtaining an interim order granting our client, sole legal decision-making responsibility (formerly known as sole custody) of her children after experiencing years of domestic violence at the hands of her former spouse. There was no order granting the other parent parenting time in this order. The other parent had originally asked the court for parenting time, as they claimed that our client had been withholding the children from them and that there was no reason for them not to have regular contact with the children.
