45 - Resolving Family Law Disputes While the Family Courts Are Closed Due to COVID-19

The closure of the Ontario Family Courts due to COVID-19 does NOT mean that separated spouses and parents have to wait to have their matters resolved.  Since separation and divorce is an uncomfortable period of transition for both adults, but especially children, waiting a few months for the courts to reopen could be painful and add additional stress and anxiety at an already difficult time.  In this edition of the Ontario Family Law Podcast, Certified Specialist, John P. Schuman, explains the procedures available to get your Family Law Matter resolved, even while the Courts are closed.  Everyone who has unresolved Family Law matters should listed so they do not have to suffer waiting to have these difficult matters resolved.
