Scott grew up in London, Ontario and recalled Kincardine fondly from a distant summer spent on Boiler Beach. When Graham Mahood was looking for someone to take over the practice he returned to Kincardine, liked what he saw and stayed. It’s been home ever since. When not practicing law, Scott has been known to tread the boards for the Kincardine Theatre Guild. He played Nathan Detroit in “Guys and Dolls” and Scrooge in “A Christmas Carol” among other roles. Scott delights in the camaraderie of the stage and finds it an excellent creative outlet.
Changes to Ontario Law Regarding Adult Children's Disability Support Payments and Child Support
The Ontario Court of Appeal has recently held that disability payments received by an adult child should be considered when determining child support for such individuals. In a recent case, the Court of Appeal held that the ODSPA embraces the concept that government, communities, families, and individuals must help people with disabilities. It is important to understand that the burden of providing for adult children with disabilities has not been entirely set at the feet of society. Parents are responsible for contributing to the welfare of an adult child who cannot leave home because of his/her disabilities.
The Court held that if there is an overlap between a portion of a disabled child's ODSP payments and a portion of the child's table amount of support payments, awarding the full amount of table support might be inappropriate.
We would be pleased to assist you with respect to your child support obligations.
