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.
Part 3A: Mobility and Jurisdiction
Russell Alexander and Associate Family Lawyers discuss new sections added to the Divorce Act, focusing primarily on relocation. Tune in to learn about the legal requirements of a parent prior to the move, what options the other party has to react and respond in a time frame, and factors that the court will consider if the parents do not agree. The themes of consideration for what is in the best interests of the child, and exceptions for cases of family violence continue to be prevalent in these new sections of the divorce act.
