DYCK v DYCK, 2023 ABKB 463


10.33: Court considerations in making costs award

Case Summary

This was a Costs Decision arising from the Plaintiff’s successful Application to compel further and better financial disclosure in the context of family law proceedings.

Mah J. cited Rule 10.33 for the factors which must be considered by the Court in exercising its discretion over Costs Awards. The Court held that the Plaintiff was substantially successful and entitled to Costs, but that there were no factors which supported a deviation from the amounts set out in Schedule C of the Rules.

Mah J. therefore ordered Costs in favour of the Plaintiff according to Column 1 of Schedule C, in the amount of $675 payable forthwith.
