Default Covid-19 and custody/access cases

How do you think Covid-19 will affect the court system?
I havenít heard anything about my upcoming matter yet, but should we expect that upcoming court dates will be deferred? If so, it seems this will greatly affect custody/access trials.
Weird times for sure.....

Maybe this will be the start to something new. I've been to court many times and wondered what the heck all the lawyers were doing there. Perhaps Family Law needs to move towards a written regime only. Judge examines written briefs, provides written questions back to each party, and allows for opportunity for written reply. No need for lawyers grandstanding on how terrible the other party is.

That would also stop us having to pay a lawyer for a whole day when he sits around at the court house waiting for your matter to be called. The matter lasts 20 minutes but you just paid him for 6 hours to sit there and wait. It's ridiculous.

The Canadian Bar Association will fight tooth and nail against any efficiencies in the court system that can see their member's incomes decrease.

Are you aware that the Canadian Bar Association advocates AGAINST shared parenting? They claim it INCREASES litigation. Can you believe that?

To be fair, they argued against a presumption of shared parenting, not shared parenting itself.

Courts are shut down till June basically. Trials that were in progress have been stopped and they are looking to June as the start date.

Basically, this will put everything out easily a year or more. Good luck to everyone that depends on the court system to get something resolved. I have a feeling settlement will be the best option for the next year.

Saw it, but it's not related to COVID at all.

Ex moved away and left kids with me. Kids are registered in her old neighborhood and won't sign new school paperwork for them to attend in my area.

Joint custody?
If yes you can register without her signature.
If she is custodian and abandoned the kids you will have an emergency motion heard I expect and will have a very good case for sole custody
