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 4: Variation, Rescission, Suspension
Russell Alexander, Nafisa Nazarali, Jason Isenberg, and Margie Primero-Pimentel wrap up the Divorce Act Changes series with this final episode. These Ontario Divorce Lawyers concur that the new legislation is very welcome (though long overdue) and sends the right message. The conscious changes in language and terminology help to reflect truer definitions. Again, we’re seeing a focus on the best interests of the child and cases of family violence. The new legislation provides more clarity in the grey areas of family law, which may lead to less time spent in litigation and more time focusing on family.
