dinkyface will become famous soon enough

CRA's rationale is
- Legal fees for establishing/enforcing CS are deductible because the support $ is the pre-determined right of the child (according to divorce act and family law reform act).
- legal fees for establishing spousal support are deductible because this $ is pre-determined right of the spouse under the divorce act.

BUT, by the same token, legal fees for establishing reasonable access/involvement of NCP should be deductible because the child's RIGHT TO BOTH PARENTS should be pre-determined.

Anyone wanna bet on whether that will ever happen?
