Hewitt & Corbett & Anor [2016] FCCA 776

In Hewitt & Corbett & Anor [2016] FCCA 776 the husband claimed he comes under the higher jurisdiction of the “UCADIA BYLAWS”, with all registrations of property and records (birth certificate etc). He claims that a property settlement between the wife and the husband was conducted under the higher jurisdiction of Ecclesiastical Ruling by the Church. The Court rejects these submissions of a higher jurisdiction and remarks that:

“…it is not its job to “engage in an archaeological survey, piecing together fragments of potential issues” (see the decision of Associate Chief Justice J D Rooke in Meads v Meads 2012 ABQB 571), in a case where a litigant is self-represented and the Court has an obligation to ensure that that litigant’s right to a fair proceeding is preserved.”
