Gene C. Colman addressed over 500 lawyers in Israel and around the world at a legal conference from Tel Aviv on March 1st, 2022. The conference was entitled: “International Taxation & Inheritance – Family Law in Israel vis-à-vis the Countries of the World”. Colman spoke on the panel entitled: “Family law taxation worldwide: Balancing and sharing the burden between spouses”. (Colman’s presentation starts at 33.25.) Colman explained Ontario’s system of sharing the wealth on marriage breakdown and how taxes enter into Ontario’s calculation of equalization of net family property. The presentation is mostly in English with some Hebrew.
The Canadian Bar Association with 13,000 members across Canada wants a rebuttable presumption applied with respect to simplifying the calculation of child support under the Child Support Guidelines. They recently wrote in 2021 to Canada’s Minister of Justice urging reform to incorporate the concept of “rebuttable presumption”. Shared parenting advocates have been calling for that term to be applied to parenting laws. Toronto family law lawyer, Gene C. Colman, a veteran advocate for a rebuttable presumption of equal shared parenting, relishes the CBA adoption of this term. The U.S. based National Parents Organization interviewed Gene C. Colman on July 22, 2021, to find out what this means for families in Canada and what are the next steps to ensure shared parenting is implemented in Canada.
