What happens to your family court date during this crisis?

By | - April 3, 2020

Steve Benmor is a recognized divorce lawyer, family mediator, arbitrator, speaker, writer and educator. Mr. Benmor has worked as lead counsel in many divorce trials, held many leadership positions in the legal community and has been regularly interviewed on television, radio and in newspapers as an expert in Family Law.

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, the Superior Court of Justice and Ontario Court of Justice have suspended all non-urgent matters until further notice. This is frustrating for most people as they had hoped to appear before a judge to attempt to resolve their issues. However, this does not mean that your case or family court date during this crisis comes to a complete stop. You or your lawyer can use this time to reach a resolution outside of court. If you cannot, then it is important that you or your lawyer plan for when the court re-opens.  Once that happens, contact the trial coordinator’s office to re-book your court date and secure the earliest possible court date.
