About the Webinar

It is no secret that a primary goal of the FCFCOA is to encourage dispute resolution and reduce the time of parties to resolve their dispute whether by settlement or following a contested trial. However, for many the new case management pathways and procedures have not resulted in more expedient resolution. This raises the question of what happens in the meantime? This session will explore how interim issues in property settlement matters ought to be managed and will discuss:

  • The difference between the intention and the reality of the new pathways and what lies ahead in the future
  • Whether interim spousal maintenance claims have a role to play in the new system and how practitioners should navigate this
  • Steps that practitioners could take to assist the Court reduce the number of procedural hearings required in a matter
  • The Court's view in relation to interim property settlement applications in the new system
