Episode 45

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. 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 3B: Mobility and Jurisdiction (cont’d)

This episode is a continuation of the discussion on the changes to the Divorce Act pertaining to relocation. Canadian Divorce Lawyers continue to compare their interpretation of the legislation, and predict future outcomes using hypothetical cases. Tune in to learn how reasons for relocation, parenting time, compliance with existing court orders and other elements may play a factor in decisions moving forward.
