Can a judge put my ex in jail for not complying with a court order? Yes! ... But not easily.

Can a judge put my ex in jail for not complying with a court order? Yes! ... But not easily.

This week we discuss a case on civil contempt: 2023 ABKB 58 https://canlii.ca/t/jv6jd In the case, the ex husband is found in civil contempt for failing to comply with a court order and arbitration award.  The problem?  He refused to remove a Certificate of Pending Litigation (lien) on title to one of the parties' real properties.  The court ordered that the ex husband be imprisioned until he purged his contempt (dischared the lien from title).  It's an extreme remedy for an extreme set of circumstances.

Stuck in Step 2 without a parenting plan, plus, when your in-laws provided you money to buy a house, and now they want it back. Was it a gift or a loan?

Stuck in Step 2 without a parenting plan, plus, when your in-laws provided you money to buy a house, and now they want it back. Was it a gift or a loan?

This week we're addressing two broad questions, first, when one parent wants shared parenting, but the other parent is the primary parent, how to prepare for mediation through Court. 

Plus, a listener raises a topic that we believe will be one of the biggest issues in divorce matters over the next 20 years: what to do when your ex's parents loaned you money to buy a house, then you separate, and the former in-laws want the money back. Was it a gift or a loan? With housing prices sky-rocketing in Canada, we believe the issue of inter-generational transfers of large sums of money will become more common as an issue in divorce. We share our thoughts on this critical developing issue.

Receiving information from child welfare, assessing personal income from corporate financial disclosure, and, dividing my property equally, but he won't share his?

Receiving information from child welfare, assessing personal income from corporate financial disclosure, and, dividing my property equally, but he won't share his?

This week we tackled three questions: First, when child welfare / protective services are involved with your family matter, can you access information that has not been formally provided to you? Second, a former partner is receiving both income and dividends from a closely held company. How can we assess what the payor's actual income is, for the purposes of child support? Finally, a listener is stuck, when a former partner wants half the sale proceeds from the family home, but he refuses to share the proceeds from the sale of his condo.

Suing to enforce an agreement on property, plus, my kids are over 18 and my ex disappeared, can I still get child support?

This week we received a SpeakPipe voicemail about a listener who has a valid separation agreement for her ex to buy her out of the family home with proceeds of sale from an out of province condo, but the agreement has not been honoured. What's next? Also, a parent who has not seen their ex for 7 years, with kids over 18, has not received child support. Is there still a claim to child support?

Let me tell you something that's actually interesting: It's Etcetera!

Welcome to the new Divorced & Done subseries, Etcetera! Without revealing too much in the show notes, we know our listeners care about their family matters, but we also know you like the light-hearted, non-divorce discussions that usually precede our family law episodes. This is the first of a regular conversation series between Darren and Rob, about things not related to family law, or as we like to say, let us tell you something actually interesting.  

Rob's Pickle Soup recipe is here: https://noblepig.com/2013/03/dill-pickle-soup/

Pro tip: instead of crackers, add crushed up dill pickle chips to the soup when serving.

Interview with Fitness Gurus Kevin and Julie Stenner. How fitness can help reduce your stress while you navigate your separation or divorce.

Last year we sat down with Kevin and Julie Stenner, who are are wellness consultants helping their clients with health, fitness, mindset and goal setting.  We thought it would be great to republish the episode as we enter the dark days of winter, Christmas, and all the stress of the season.

Mindfulness, Journalling and Boundaries...Oh My! with Special Guest Jenny Ma

Mindfulness, Journalling and Boundaries...Oh My! with Special Guest Jenny Ma

What's the best part of a lawyer's podcast? It's when they bring in the psychologist! This week we are excited to collaborate with Jenny Ma of Wake Up with Jenny & Friends. Jenny helps us understand the ways in which self care and boundaries can allow for a smoother transition into re-partnering or as she calls it "shining your shoes", Darren and Rob ask poignant questions like "what is journalling?", and a few laughs are shared about Jenny's ability to turn a phrase. Follow Jenny on social media here: https://www.instagram.com/wakeupwithjennyandfriends/?hl=en

What are laws and where do they come from?

What are laws and where do they come from?

What are laws?  Where did they come from?  How do our provincial and federal governments work together with our courts to make laws respecting things like divorce and family law matters?  It all starts with our constitution (1867 British North America Act and 1982 Charter of Rights and Freedoms).  We also sprinkle in a little bit of our common law (judge made laws) and then we have the right mix to create the perfect recipe for making effective laws governing divorce and family matters.

Making an agreement that sticks, or not. Separation agreements, prenuptial agreements, and cohabitation/marriage agreements.

Making an agreement that sticks, or not. Separation agreements, prenuptial agreements, and cohabitation/marriage agreements.

On this spooky version of Divorced and Done, Rob and Darren discuss how to scare a family lawyer: use a separation agreement from Staples or Office Depot. Kidding, kind of -- Staples if you see this, we'd love that free box of pens.

In reality, Darren and Rob break down the nuts and bolts of separation agreements. What should you know before you sign? Why should you ask a lawyer to help? And, how do you define possessions as things other than "stuff"? Plus: if you create a separation agreement using a kit from Office Depot, can it be used in a court of law in Canada?

Stories Episode 1: Crying in the Parking Lot

Stories Episode 1: Crying in the Parking Lot

From Divorced and Done Media, we present the Stories Series.  In Stories we share some of the more noteworthy and impactful experiences we have had as lawyers.  Some details have been modified to protect the identities of those involved. In Episode 1 of Stories, Darren shares how a mediation went from good to bad, with the litigants having a screaming match in the parking lot.  Not everything we do in the law makes sense. Sometimes people going though a court battle just need to express themselves, or have a complete meltdown!  

We'd love your feedback on Stories.  Send us a voicemail to speakpipe.com/divorcedanddone or an email to lawyerstalkingaboutdivorce@gmail.com.  Check us out online at www.divorcedanddone.com.

My ex disappeared 5 years ago, can I still get divorced? Plus, dealing with cryptocurrency, and self-employment income through a corporation.

This week we're dealing with vanishing exes, when joint assets disappear into cryptocurrency, corporate versus personal income taxes, and whether your ex, who makes more than $100,000.00 than you, has a valid spousal support claim.

Even if you've been working through the Divorced & Done steps and have a Christmas parenting arrangement in place, we'll address holiday parenting time more generally and what Courts have said historically, including why Tim Allen's The Santa Clause is our favorite family law Christmas movie.

The process of creating a separation agreement is not as quick and easy as movies and TV shows make it seem. We'll take you through the process of creating a separation agreement, and why at this final step, you'll likely want to use a lawyer.
