If the Olympic team is involved then you have a claim... Otherwise... It is a recreational sport.

Is there any case law to prove that it is not extraordinary? I am being taken to court to pay for hockey when I did not consent to it.

I think the more important question is what does your child want and how old is your child? If my child was already in a sport and loved it, I would pay for some of those expenses. But if it was a little kid just starting out and I didn't want the child to go down the hockey path then I would say no. I think hockey and dance are probably the most expensive sports out there, and would be pretty hard to afford via one person. The only other situation I could see refusing to pay was if child wanted to go in too many activities, making it unmanagabel logistically, or unaffordable, or affecting grades.

I've said no to hockey since he was 4! Mother unilaterally put him in, actually step father did...2 yrs ago. Said they weren't seeking contribution and now asking for it and saying I was unreasonable. Keep in mind we're 2 hours drive apart...and 3 other children.

IN that case, since you never wanted hockey to begin with from age four, I think it would be hard to justify the other parent pay for it, but legally, I have no idea how this plays out in court. It probablyhelps if you have an email or something to show from age four you didn't want to do hockey

I certainly do have them all! Including the one of her agreeing with me to not go down that path. Then she did. Said she wasn't asking contribution and now she is and says I have unreasonably withheld consent.

What does your order say? Are you obligated to pay half or a proportional rate for sports?

Sorry, but if you have the means to pay for your kids' hockey whether it be house league or travel, then do so. Split the costs with your ex if need be. If your kid truly enjoys it why wouldn't you? Perhaps your EX will need to understand other expenses may be limited because of it. Decide as a couple with your child if this is an expense worth the fuss, but don't deny your kid the opportunity hockey will give him or her regardless if this falls under the umbrella of Ectraordinary!

Hey Tandem80 - wonder if everyone would feel the same if your ex put your child in something REALLY expensive such as equestrian.... Would you have to pay for horse's board and farrier, equipment for horse and rider, lessons, de-worming/veterinarian and all the costs associated with competitive side of things?

If either parent want kids to go into something AFTER divorce then they are expected to obtain the other parent's approval if they expect the other parent to share the cost.

Here is a case that I just read from CanLii:

https://www.canlii.org/en/on/onsc/do...&resultIndex=4

Keep in mind there are 3 children but interesting reading nevertheless. Not sure I agree with the decision but then what do I know.... not much when it comes to child support. With that in mind, I'd say it is pretty important to do thorough research... CanLii is a good start.
