How has the Respondent Respondent responded to an application for a change in parenting time?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from R.D.S. v R.M.U, 2019 BCSC 525 (CanLII):

As mentioned, the respondent moved to Vancouver on October 17, 2018, the day after he filed his response to the applicant’s application. I find the move was to a large degree an attempt to thwart the applicant’s plans for relocation. He now applies for a change in the parenting regime, seeking a 50/50 division of parenting time. The foundation of his application is his move to Vancouver. In ordinary circumstances, a parent relocating to the city where his or her child resides might well provide a strong reason to vary a parenting regime, because it both makes access with that parent easier and maximizes contact with each parent as directed by the Divorce Act, s.16(10); see also Young v. Young, 1993 CanLII 34 (SCC), [1993] 4 S.C.R. 3 at 117-18.
