SER v JS, 2020 ABQB 267


5.13: Obtaining records from others

Case Summary

In an Application to recover child support arrears, the Applicant alleged that the Respondent had concealed income earned through corporate entities. In raising concern for the true scope of the Respondent’s shareholdings, the Applicant argued that the Respondent had failed to provide sufficient financial disclosure which would permit verification of the extent of the Respondent’s corporate interests. The Court found that the Respondent had satisfied the disclosure obligations set out in the Alberta Child Support Guidelines, and that further disclosure from third party corporate entities would have to be pursued through an Application on notice to those parties, pursuant to Rule 5.13.
