Interim Support Order

Su v. Lam | 2017 ONSC 2414 | Ontario Superior Court of Justice

... by its very nature the interim support order was just that — an interim direction by the court, made at a preliminary stage of the [Succession Law Reform Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. S.26], Application, before either side had the opportunity to make production, conduct discovery, or fully articulate their position. The mere fact that one party may not have made a certain argument at a preliminary stage of a proceeding does not, generally speaking, preclude that party from advancing that argument at a later stage when it may be considered by the court on a proper record.
