Synopsis

Bill C-78 introduces important new provisions regarding disclosure and confidentiality under amendments to the Family Orders and Agreements Enforcement Assistance Act. As well, Bill C-78 also takes steps for federal implementation and streamlining of interjurisdictional procedures, including under the 1996 Hague Child Protection Convention and the 2007 Hague Child Support Convention. Bill C-78 also has new jurisdictional rules in parenting cases. These changes will present challenges for family law practitioners. Take this webinar to bring stability to your family law practice.
