For many years now, the issue of enforceability of a Maher marriage contract as well as its interrelationship with provincial family law property regimes has been considered by our courts. This issue was put before the Ontario Court of Appeal very recently in Bakhshi v. Hosseinzadeh, 2017 ONCA 838 and the court’s analysis of this particular Maher is worthy of review by those practising family law in Ontario.
An age-old argument around who a child’s primary caregiver is was recently rekindled in the Court of Appeal. The case, Porter v. Bryan, 2017 ONCA 677, dealt with mobility rights and the parents of a five-year-old boy.
