Bankruptcy, Insolvency and Family Law, 2nd Edition
By: Robert A. Klotz, B.Sc. (Maths), J.D., LL.M.
Availability: In Stock
$372.00
Description
Already cited in the case law (Nelson v. Nelson (Alta. Q.B.)), this supplemented service is a guide to every legal issue that arises when family law interacts with debtor-creditor or bankruptcy law and includes discussion of more than 1,000 new and unreported cases. It sets out the conceptual structure for resolving all of these issues, along with in-depth analysis of all of the legislation and jurisprudence - both Canadian and common law, reported and unreported, English and French - that bears on the topic. All provincial nuances are discussed, such as British Columbia's unique priority rules, Newfoundland's deemed joint ownership of the matrimonial home, Quebec's dual proprietary remedies and Alberta's highly discretionary division remedy. The scope is also international, as the text covers relevant case law from all other common law jurisdictions.
