What is the test for reducing contact between the access parent and the custodial parent?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Choudry v. Cater, 2018 ONCJ 238 (CanLII):

And at ¶ 25 of Gordon v. Goertz, she said, “[t]he reduction of beneficial contact between the child and the access parent does not always dictate a change of custody or an order which restricts moving the child”. The benefits served by remaining with the custodial parent and permitting the move may very well offset the reduction of contact.
