C M O P v C P A P
The circumstance of this application for enforcement of spousal maintenance is rare. On 18th July 2018, the Respondent/Wife in the action filed an application seeking, among other things, an order for enforcement of arrears of spousal maintenance which accrued over approximately nine years, in the sum of $192,000.00. The Applicant/Husband in the action had not complied with the orders for disclosure made approximately nine years earlier. I extended the time to comply with various orders on two occasions. Even then the Husband had not complied with all the orders. Counsel for the Wife then made an oral application for payment of arrears of maintenance for the two years preceding the hearing, in the sum of $24,000.00. It is that latter application that I was asked to decide.
