Details and specs

Parenting Law and Practice in Canada guides the practitioner through all aspects of law and practice related to custody and access in Canada. The expert commentary covers the stages of a custody access proceeding including interim proceedings, and decisions on the merits, enforcement, variation, and appeals. This work examines the substantive and procedural law as well as negotiation, tactical, and advocacy skills. Alternative dispute resolution methods are considered, as are other topics of current interest such as the expansion of access rights, including access for grandparents, child representation, mobility rights, and the effect of religion upon custody and access.

This is an essential tool for family law practitioners. This comprehensive manual is fully indexed and includes custody legislation from each province. Periodic supplements keep the law and practice completely current.

This leading family law text has undergone a complete update in three years, covering all aspects of parenting law with a special emphasis on recent amendments to the Divorce Act. These amendments, which received Royal Assent on June 21, 2019 and will mostly come into force on July 1, 2020, reflect the most extensive amendments to the Divorce Act in decades. The primary focus of the amendments is to ensure the best interests of the child are the only considerations for parenting decisions under the Divorce Act.

Important changes covered in this work include:

  • Factors to be considered in determining the best interests of a child
  • New terminology that focuses on the relationship between children and their parents, and family members
  • The impact of family violence
  • Parenting orders, which outline parenting time and decision-making responsibility
  • The introduction of contact orders
  • Procedure for relocation of a child
  • Importance of alternative dispute resolution
