Divorce proceedings against retired Toronto Maple Leaf enforcer Tie Domi were adjourned until next Thursday.

Lawyers for both Tie and his estranged wife, Leanne, refused comment yesterday. Tie is facing court sanctions for allegedly violating a restraining order last Friday and on Monday.

Both sides must submit affidavits by Tuesday and two days later, will appear in superior court to resolve issues of child access and the disclosure of Tie's financial records.

Leanne alleged in an affidavit filed this week that Tie went to their Oxbow Rd. home only three days after signing a consent agreement that prohibited unauthorized visits.

Tie also reportedly turned up Monday and when asked to contact his lawyer, declined, saying he couldn't do so because it was a Jewish holiday.

"I had understood from the restraining order that he was not to attend at the matrimonial home, except to exercise access, which was to be specified and arranged," Leanne stated in an affidavit filed Monday.

Leanne also stated she didn't want to call police because "doing so would have placed the children squarely into the dispute, and would have harmed them. I said nothing and I did nothing because I did not wish to create a scene that would hurt or confuse the children."
