Family law changes (Ontario)


Alan Shanof - “Instead of tinkering with the status quo, why not blow up the current system and design a new system, a non-adversarial system that limits the role of lawyers? Perhaps we're afraid of even thinking about designing a more intelligent system dealing with family law disputes. …

At the same time, we need to look at what motivates, and eliminate the worst excesses in family law litigants' behaviour. False accusations of abuse, denial of access, hiding assets, bullying and other abuses must be eliminated by instituting real and timely remedies.”
