What is the test for obtaining a section 211 assessment?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from N.R. v N.P., 2017 BCSC 1962 (CanLII):

This is not to say a s. 211 report should or must be ordered in every case where it is sought. The applicant must obviously satisfy the court that there is some potential benefit to such a report. As noted in Ryan v. Reid, 2002 BCSC 872, at paras. 13 to 15, "assessments should not be ordered as fishing expeditions."
