Our firm was retained by the Applicant/Mother, in the case of Saeed v Khalid, 2020 ONSC 939.
The parties married in 2010 in Toronto and separated in 2016. The separation was unusual – the Applicant/Mother was unable to return to the United States due to immigration issues pertaining to her U.S. permanent residency, and the Respondent/Father’s lack of effort in helping her regain U.S. immigrations status. The Applicant/Mother, and the parties’ two children, were resultantly stranded in Canada, without Respondent/Father. In that time, the Respondent/Father remarried.
The Applicant/Mother commenced a court application, seeking sole custody of the children, supervised access for the Respondent/Father, and retroactive and ongoing child support, including the payment of section 7 expenses.
With the assistance of our firm, the Applicant/Mother was successful in her claims for:
- Noting the Respondent/Father in default;
- Sole custody, including travel and government issued identification rights;
- The Respondent/Father to have supervised access with the children at an access centre, with unsupervised access to be at the Applicant/Mother’s discretion; and
- Imputing the Respondent/Father at an income of $335,400.00 per annum, for the purposes of child support, with Orders being made for:
- Ongoing child support to be paid in the amount of $4,302.00 per month;
- Retroactive child support to be paid in the amount of $3,000.00 per month; and
- The Respondent/Father shall pay 71.6% of his share of the children’s section 7 special and extraordinary expenses, in an amount that does not exceed $1,500.00 per child, annually.
All support orders are enforced by the Family Responsibility Office.
