Divorce Act Amendments


This webinar will offer an overview of one of the most extensive overhauls of the Divorce Act since its implementation in 1985. Participants will be provided with a summary of key changes and new approaches to family law in the wake of this major legislative amendment. 
 
Areas to be covered include the new relocation provisions in the Act (along with a discussion of the impact of similar guidelines in British Columbia), parenting terminology and new factors which must be considered in the determination of best interests of the child and the treatment of family violence in the Act. 
 
We will also cover provisions to make the family law justice system more accessible and efficient, including ways to address inadequate disclosure through changes to the Family Orders and Agreements Enforcement Assistance Act, new ISO processes for Divorce Act matters, and the long term goal to ratify the 2007 Hague Child Support Convention.
