Answer: I need to know what “abroad” means. Some jurisdictions have reciprocal enforcement agreements with Canada, such as most USA states. If so, this means that they will also enforce an Ontario support Order.

In addition, we can claim “lump sum” support in the circumstances, meaning that if there is enough “property” we can claim more of it (such as net equity from a matrimonial home) to compensate you now. We could also seek to hold such property “in trust” so that it is available for periodic payments. There are viable options to protect you, subject to the unique facts of your case. If you call me I would be pleased to provide you with a free consultation.
