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.

Are you thinking about moving, but aren’t sure how it will affect your custody agreement?
Reg Sauer is a family lawyer at Nychuk and Company who has had expertise in family matters for over 30 years. Reg recently represented a client who had joint custody of their children. The client wanted to relocate from Saskatchewan to British Columbia and take their children with them. Regular circumstances would require a court application to obtain an order allowing the client to relocate without the opposing party’s consent. Reg was able to avoid long and tedious court applications by using the notice to relocate provisions under the recently amended Divorce Act. A notice to relocate was provided to the client to serve on the other party. The client was able to seamlessly transition to a different province.
