Effective Notice



PREVOST v. PREVOST | 2017 ONSC 5825 | Ontario Superior Court of Justice


Effective notice refers to any indication by the recipient that support should be paid or that the current amount of support needs to be renegotiated.

Effective notice can be in any form since the court only requires that it be “broached”. Thus, a documented phone call, e-mail, fax, letter, lawyer's demand, and the like may all constitute “effective notice”and generally start the clock running with respect to a change in support.
