How much is a child entitled to access expenses when the access costs are "unusually high"?

Nova Scotia, Canada


The following excerpt is from S.S. v. D. S., 2013 NSSC 384 (CanLII):

In Wainman v. Clairmont, 2004 NSSC 39, Hall J. said, at para. 25, that "[w]hether access expenses are "unusually high" … must be determined based on the relative financial means of the parent responsible for the access expenses. For an affluent person, a few hundred dollars a month for access expenses would be a pittance, while for a person dependent on social assistance for his or her living expenses, it would be an impossibility."
