Is the child of the marriage still considered to be a Child of the Marriage?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Dunn v. Dunn, 2010 BCSC 690 (CanLII):

On the basis of the material tendered in this hearing, I am satisfied that the child continued to be a “child of the marriage”: see Neufeld v. Neufeld, 2005 BCCA 7. The petitioner’s obligation to pay child support extends through to February 28, 2009, and he is therefore in arrears. Accordingly, I refuse to confirm the provisional order with respect to the child’s status as a child of the marriage.
