New Ontario divorce rules aim to avoid courts

Link "Starting Monday, every Ontario couple hoping to end their marriage will have to attend an information session on alternatives to going to court and will have the option to meet for mediation before getting a divorce."

This would seem to be a futile idea if children are involved ... a divorce is often preceded by a separation ... part of the separation procedure involves establishing the principal residence of any children of the marriage ... that residency most often goes to the mother ... once this becomes the status quo the father is a second class citizen ... leave it to lawyers to screw things up.
