ONCA on Succession and Family Law
The Ontario Court of Appeal released a decision on how to apply the Succession Law Reform Act where a husband had been ordered to purchase life insurance to cover his obligations for support. The husband remarried, and changed the beneficiaries of the account to include the second wife and children and of the second marriage. After his death, Wife 1 and Wife 2 claimed entitlement to the insurance proceeds.
