How Do I Freeze Assets in My family Case?
In cases of urgency or in extraordinary circumstances, an application for a pre-trial emergency order may be made without notice under . Counsel must provide all of the facts of the case including the pros and cons or they risk their restraining order being set aside.
In Kapoor v. Makkar, 2020 BCCA 223, the court stated with respect to without notice orders (at para. 11):
A “without notice” order is an extraordinary, powerful, interlocutory remedy which is recognized as having the potential to inflame a dispute between parties in fraught situations or to produce potential injustice when made on incomplete submissions that generate a wrong understanding of the circumstances. To protect against avoidable damage to the litigants or the litigation process, while retaining this valuable judicial response for emergency situations, procedural safeguards … are usually employed. These may include a true interim term establishing the duration of the order, or a term providing a return date by which an opportunity is given to the other party to be heard without their filing a fresh application, and a term requiring service, by a time certain, of all materials that were before the judge on the application, along with a copy of the entered order. On occasion even short notice, or even informal notice, will serve to alleviate some of the offence that may be taken from the presentation to a party of an order obtained against them without notice. There is, of course, a time and place for without notice orders, but … to the extent possible when a without notice order must be made, these time honoured safeguards should be employed vigorously
Setting Aside Ex Without Notice Orders
We have experience in obtaining ex parte orders that freeze assets but also in setting aside improperly obtained without notice restraining orders.
Cases such as Cyr v. Cyr, 1996 CanLII 2828 (BC SC) (Master) highlight the difficulty a spouse may have in overturning a restraining order made without notice, even where the court holds that the order is not strictly necessary. In Cyr, the restraining order was continued in order to allow a “cooling off” period. See also P.F. v. J.T.F., 2021 BCSC 1506 (Master), an application to set aside an ex parte protection order. The court upheld the order but commented that the application ought not to have been on a without notice basis in the first place.
In Devathasan we established how smart lawyers put all the evidence in front of the court to ensure the without notice ex-parte order is bulletproof.
