British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Martens v Gabriel, 2022 BCSC 155 (CanLII):

As to the specifics of its application, the respondent relies upon Mohamed v. Martone, 2019 BCSC 38 as support for the proposition that where a child is resident other than in the home of the payee for eight months of the year and their expenses are being met from either RESPs or, as here, endowments from the PIB, support should only be payable for the four months of the year where it is anticipated the adult child will live with the payee.
