在之前的blog中,我们介绍了新冠病毒对孩子抚养费和配偶赡养费产生影响的案例。然而在一个最新的安大略法院的判决中,法官因为新冠病毒而产生的不确定因素,拒绝对财产分割做出判决。以下由我们多伦多中文离婚律师团队为您介绍案件相关部分。

Jayawickrema v. Jayawickrema这个案例中,安大略Superior Court of Justice评价道:在庭审之后,妻子的生意受到了新冠病毒的直接波及,因为她的生意涉及到学生,所以安大略省对于社交隔离的规定影响到她经营生意的能力。

Neither party affirmatively dealt with the issue of unconscionability in their evidence even though it was a trial issue. No case law was provided to the Court. The wife seems to have been oblivious to the possibility that she could be exposed to such a claim and the husband dismissed it entirely. This is especially concerning for a couple of reasons:

(a)   Since the trial concluded, the COVID-19 pandemic has decimated the global economy. It was inferentially clear from the wife’s evidence that her business involved students and, quite possibly, people in close contact with each other. Public Health guidelines and restrictions have likely impacted the wife’s ability to operate her business, pay the mortgage on its premises and thus fund any equalization payment; …

接着,法院认为因为新冠对财产估值,特别是公司估值所带来的不确定性太多,所以不适合当场做出财产分割的判决,而应该等待进一步的证据。

而在今年七月的最后一次开庭中,法官在得到更多的证据之后,尽管认为新冠对财产的估值产生了影响,但其并没有达到让妻子重新分割家庭财产的程度。

While I have every reason to suspect that the current pandemic is having, and may for the foreseeable future have, an impact on the wife’s business and possibly the value of her realty, I am not persuaded that she has met the exceptionally high evidentiary onus for unconscionability required by s. 5(6)(h) of the Act.
