Mother wins $13.4 million in child support settlement from Nova Scotia developer after lengthy court battle.
Hard to tell exactly what precipitated such a large award - but clearly the Dad was not incented to litigate the case. He decamped some time ago and appears negotiated with his Ex from the safety of a foreign country without an enforceable extradition treaty with Canada.
And he was a millionaire.
Not sure I trust the rather biased article given most commentary was from Mom's lawyer.
What needs to asked is - does this kind of award indicate Canada is no better/worse than other international jurisdiction like London UK or Florida/California USA when it comes to insane child custody awards?
