50 - Is COVID19 A Good Time to Separate or Divorce?



Ontario Family Law Podcast

The pandemic has been extremely stressful for everyone.  The fears of getting sick, combined with being isolated from friends and loved ones, the disruption of routines, the loss of favorite activities and perhaps the financial insecurity has made coping difficult for people who do not have underlying mental health problems.   Add to that, many people are spending more time with their spouses than they ever have before, and they are learning lots about partners, and perhaps lots that they do not like.  Life can become intolerable for people living together, particularly where they cannot get along or sympathize with what each other are feelings.  For many others who already have strained relationship, the pandemic has pushed them past the breaking point.  Many people are asking, “Is COVID19 a good time to separate?” 


In this episode of the Ontario Family Law Podcast, Certified Specialist in Family Law, John Schuman, provides some important information for making that decision.


While this episode answers specific questions about separating during COVID19, many of the considerations are applicable at other times too.  Concerns about custody of the children, child support, spousal support and how property division will work out will continue even after the pandemic is over. The Family Law Principals will be the same.  Only the circumstances will be different.

49 - Can Parents Get Private School Tuition Back Due to COVID-19?

Ontario Family Law Podcast

49 - Can Parents Get Private School Tuition Back Due to COVID-19? 


Ontario students have been out of school for since March. Parents of children in the public school system have been struggling with helping their children through lessons at home with what many of them feel is inadequate support, especially for children with special learning needs.  Parent with children in private school have been facing that, and additional concerns regarding paying tuition.  Even though they are closed to students due to the pandemic, and many parents are struggling financially, some Ontario Private Schools are asking parents to pay for the 2020/2021 school year now.   Others are continuing to charge for school this year or are refusing any form of refund even though students are not going to school.   For parents who paid for boarding, that can be a lot of money and it seems particularly unfair since their children are not currently living at the school.   Unlike public school parents, private school parents feel stung even more if the distance learning for their children is not meeting their expectations in light of what they paid.


In this episode of the Ontario Family Law Podcast, host,  education lawyer John Schuman, explains how Ontario Education Law may give parents some avenues to seek money back from Ontario Private Schools who are charging tuition while school is out due to the pandemic.
