Kazberov v. Kotlyachkova, 2021 ONSC 5006

In Kazberov v. Kotlyachkova, 2021 ONSC 5006, the Ontario Divisional Court reverses a three-week mobility trial decision, thus enabling a young mother to relocate with her son from Ontario to Michigan. The Divisional Court found that the Trial Judge did not correctly apply the legal principles dealing with a custodial parent’s request to move with the child. This was one of the first relocation appellate decisions after the amendments to the Divorce Act and the Children’s Law Reform Act. Affirmed in the Ontario Court of Appeal.
