Received an update today: So disclosure was requested early February and there was a laundry list of account ect. Absolutely nothing provided and no response from opposing counsel. My lawyer is trying to schedule a case conference and so far every date recommended does not work for OC. I do have a legal question: OC has been holding money in trust for my ex in another family law matter, the money is in relation to the sale of a property. In my disclosure request it states to declare any money held in trust. This is the 2nd time OC has failed to disclose these funds. Is that legal?? Next update Monday as my lawyer will try to follow up again.

You need to go to a motion for disclosure not a conference. The motion is separate and will force him to disclose the items ordered. Tell your lawyer to get moving on this rather than spinning their wheels.

Not sure about that one. You can't have a motion before a case conference unless it's urgent or an emergency. She needs to book a CC date asap, let the other side worry about the date, and complete the CC without booking another one. Then she can bring a motion for disclosure.

Even though my ex will not disclose, he is asking for disclosure from my common law partner, he is requesting expenses that my partner pays, benefit summary from his employer and NOA'S, my partner does not want to provide personal and financial information, any advise if my partner should, my partner actually financially supports my exs child when he doesn't.

What janus said. Plus on page x of my form 13 financial statement I did not check section b declaring hardship therefore their income is irrelevant to these proceedings.

Update: CC set for June 9. My lawyer asked for disclosure again. Nothing provided again and his lawyer responded that it will be discussed at CC. 2 years wasted asking for disclosure. His lawyer wants to send our child to a therapist all of a sudden. Beyond ridiculous. Ex now refuses to pay child support due to pandemic and his lawyer states that my ex has to file his taxes first prior to applying to CERB. best part is my ex work IT and has not been laid off. Lastly in 5 years i denied access once and it was recently when the pandemic started and his lawyer is trying to spin it that access is denied continuously. Honestly, i hate him and his crooked lawyer. lies after lies after lies. My lawyer does not even repsond to the BS they are writing in there letters. Funny he has $$ to pay for lawyers letters but not child support. my ex has 3 pending court matters at the moment. Cant' wait for June 9. my lawyer is telling me that due to the fact that OC is not cooperating and blatantly misleading the court that all my costs to date should be awarded at CC. stay safe everyone.

Dont get your hopes up for costs. I have been involved in protracted litigation for 81/2 years with an unreasonable ex whos full time hobby is disregarding court orders. Not once at the dozens of CC or even TMCs was costs ever awarded. Each and every time costs were reserved. Just recently, after 81/2 years. at a motion, I was finally awarded costs.

I second what Stillbreathing said. High likelihood you will not get costs at CC. Even at trial you need to substantially win the trial, and even then it is usually a portion of your legal costs, so you are still in the hole. Don't hold your breath for costs at anything but after a trial win.
