Wednesday’s Video: Family Law Now Episode 42 – Divorce Act Changes Part 2A: Best Interests of the Child

Changes to the Divorce Act were implemented on March 1, 2021. We’ve broken down the federal legislation into a six part series due to the quantity of important changes implemented. We hope to provide helpful dialogue for parties involved in family law matters and professionals in the family justice system to understand the changes.

In this episode, Russell Alexander is joined by associate family lawyers Margie Primero-Pimentel, Michelle Mulchan, and Alex De Melo to review and reflect on the new legislation regarding best interests of the child. They each bring unique perspective to the conversation with stories about their own clients, concerns about logistics, and potential for future outcomes.
