Have you started an application with the court? Why are you paying a lawyer but doing nothing. It's hard to claim urgency when you've waited 2+ years. Start the process. Hopefully you won't have to wait 7-8 months, which I'm assuming is due to the holidays and trial sittings.

Good to know my ex can't claim he urgently needs to sell the matrimonial home. He has plenty of access to assets he can easily convert and turn into cash.

Depends on the motion and the court. You could try to contact the court and see what the timelines are for that court.

you are an absolute savage...that was such a good burn

I have a feeling at some point her case will show up on canlii or the corollary relief twitter feed and you will have some good reading materials for entertainment

It wasn't savage or a burn; simply an observation. You come off goofy. Grow up!

He was talking about my comment about trueblue.

As for TB22, dont get cocky. He can go for costs (and will win) if you continue to drag your feet on disclosure. See how you like 75 grand for your lawyer and another 75 for his!!

Urgent motions would be mobility cases, cases where access is unilaterally cut off, and cases involving violence.

Unfortunately being pushed into the poor house is not considered urgent.

It has been a good 8 months and my ex still refuses to vacate and sell the matrimonial home. We do have a process in place now (med/arbitration scheduled for October).

It is clear from her email correspondence she expects me to "make up" the difference from what she preceives the matrimonial home was worth when we seperated and refuses to accept a lower value. Is that true? I am the one that has been trying to get her to sell for years.

I dont believe so. Much like the stories in the news say, having waited to sell and seeing the market collapse is the sellers fault. If she had sold when it was hot she would have reaped the benefits. She doesnt get to demand more money from you for dragging her heels.

ETA: did you get an appraisal of the house when you split? You may want to look into that. Or if you have details on comparable sales in the neighbourhood. That would set the value of the house. My husbands ex refused to accept that their house had increased in value and that it expected to be more money when they split. He had a realtor appraise its value at much higher than his ex wanted. He didnt bother spending the money fighting her on it because it was one of the non starter items in their debate. He wasnt going to spend 30 grand to walk away with only 10 more.
