Default Hamilton/GTA Section 30 Assessor Recommendations

Hi There,

I'm looking for recommendations on assessors that are familiar with modern social science with respect to access and custody. Particularly those with experience as it relates to very young children (1 year old). Looking for assessors within the Hamilton/Oakville/GTA areas, any recommendations?

If you are in Hamilton area don't bother. The justices in Hamilton are some of the most educated and progressive in the area of family law, joint custody and equal access.

You will be before Pazaratz, Chappel or Harper in Hamilton and all three of them are excellent justices.

Section 30 custody and access evaporators are not needed.

See this post that outlines Justice Pazaratz's opinion on Section 30 assessors. Note: Justice Pazaratz is a judge in the Hamilton court.

Save your money and don't bother with the OCL or Section 30 assessors. Just go straight to trial and spend your money on a very good lawyer.

Good Luck!

Jurisdiction is Halton, so judges are in Milton. Circumstances are such that a s.30 will be taking place. For better or worse. Looking for recommendations at this time?

Milton judges are also very good and very educated. Nothing a Section 30 could tell them that they don't already know about custody and access of young children. Not like you are in a small family court jurisdiction where you will get a judge who doesn't exclusively hear family law matters.

Suffice to say, bringing in a Section 30 assessor is about 35,000 and you need to get an order if the other parent doesn't agree on consent. It will add about 1-2 years on to your litigation.

You are better off just retaining a very good lawyer and have them bring a motion forward for access. If you are willing to drop 35,000+ on OCL then you should have a lawyer like Phil Epstein representing you. (Philip M. Epstein | Epstein Cole)

Don't waste your money. Also, you can't contact them directly. If you do they won't work on your file. You have to have your lawyer contact them. None of them will work with a self represented litigant or even take your call.

The best one in the GTA is: Jacqueline Vanbetlehem | BSW, MA, RSW, Acc.F.M.

But, be prepared to pay big time.

Good Luck!

Feel free to click on my name on this site and read my postings regarding Section 30 and OCL. I am sure LF32 will be by to say the same thing to you about wasting your money and time with all of this.

If you want to pay 35,000 to learn about 2-2-3 and 2-2-5-5 access schedules you can... Or you can read this for free... http://www.ottawadivorce.com/forum/f...plained-13702/

Assessments are a waste of money, a racket. If the facts supporting what you're arguing for exist, make sure they come out in trial and you're golden. You don't need an assessor to figure out what the facts are and then repeat them to the court.
