Listen to Hull on Estates #378 – Time limits on dependent support claims

Today on Hull on Estates, David M. Smith and Holly LeValliant discuss some time limits on bringing dependant support claims. In a recent decision of Justice Penny, the Court held that the six month time limitation in section 61 of the Succession Law Reform Act does not operate like a typical limitation to bar any proceeding at all. The Court has the discretion to grant leave to comment an application with respect to the assets that have not yet been distributed.
