What is the effect of a judge's finding that a father's financial disclosure in support of his application for divorce was inadequate and unreliable?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Beissner v. Matheusik, 2015 BCCA 308 (CanLII):

Second, the judge found the father’s financial disclosure in support of his application inadequate and unreliable. On appeal, the father applied to adduce fresh evidence, presumably to shore up the basis for his submissions before Fitch J. However, having reviewed that material, I am unable to find that it meets the test for the receipt of such evidence as set out in Palmer v. The Queen, 1979 CanLII 8 (SCC), [1980] 1 S.C.R. 759 at 775-76. It is therefore inadmissible.
