On April 14, 2020, the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia (Family Division) issued an updated Notice (see attached). Of note,
The Court is working with the Bar Society Liaison Committee on a revised process and the input of the Bar is being solicited;
Conciliators are now engaging in preliminary discussions with clients;
The Court is able to process uncontested divorces, although they still are not able to process new uncontested divorces; and
The Court remains open to a party making submissions that a denial of parenting time because of COVID-19 needs to be heard as an emergency matter.
To discuss your unique situation amidst COVID-19, talk to Terrance G. Sheppard or a member of our Family Law team. Request your free 30-minute consultation via phone or virtual meeting platform (Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, etc.).
If you suffered minor injuries from a motor vehicle collision, Nova Scotia law sets a limit for the amount you can be awarded for your pain and suffering. This limit depends on the year in which the collision happened.
