Another major directive from the Supreme Court of Canada concerning the variation of support obligations in the recent case Colucci v Colucci, 2021 SCC 24. This case puts complete onus on the payor to disclose timely, complete, and accurate financial information for both retroactive increases or decreases of their support obligations. It also reaffirms that effective notice of such increase has to be accompanied by supporting financial information and that a formal application in a decrease scenario must happen within 3 years of the date of effective notice.
