Prepare for the new Family Law Act with this essential guidebook!
The Family Law Act comes into force on March 18, 2013 and brings with it a new approach to family law in British Columbia. Winner of the ACLEA Award for Professional Excellence in Publications, the Family Law Act Transition Guide is designed to help you get ready for the new Act. It includes an overview chapter that guides you through the key changes in the Act followed by a chapter focusing on the duties, roles, and skills that will be required under the new Act. The annotated Act includes the Ministry of Justice explanations on the reasons behind the sections as well as commentary prepared by leading family law practitioners which provides further guidance on particular sections of the Act. There is a table of concordance to help you identify whether a section is new or carried over from the Family Relations Act. All of this information is available in a convenient looseleaf binder and online version.
Subscriptions include online access with search capability and links to the full text of case law and legislation.
