Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Ryan v. Ryan, 2009 ABQB 416 (CanLII):

It is correct that the decision of our Court of Appeal in Hunt v. Smolis-Hunt allows for the imputation of higher income only where the payor has pursued a deliberate course of conduct for the purpose of evading child support obligations, or where there is demonstrated proof of a specific intention to undermine or avoid child support obligations, or circumstances which permit the court to infer that the intention of the obligor is to undermine or avoid his/her child support obligations.
