There is a common saying in family law; there are no winners just varying degrees of losers. It’s become well known that family law matters take too long to finish, cost too much and rarely concludes in meeting the client’s needs.
The Ontario family court system is bloated, and it has become accepted that family law matters will likely take years to settle. Once started, Court Applications can take at least three to four months to be put in front of a judge. Exhaustingly, after this much wait, a judge will still only be dealing with the preliminary issues.
The painstaking wait is only half the problem, the average cost of a contested family law matter can run up to $45,000 or more.
