Amendments to the Divorce Act
It is the hope of FDRIO that the amendments to the Divorce Act (Bill C-78) are adopted before the next election. It has been 20 years since the last attempt at amendments and about 35 years since the Divorce Act was significantly changed.
In late November, 2018, former Chair of FDRIO and Co-Chair of the Advocacy Committee, Barbara Landau, appeared before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights to make submissions on Bill C-78 (Divorce Reform), as the representative of FDRIO.
In advance of her attendance, FDRIO delivered written submissions, co-authored by Marie Nickle, Tom Dart and Barbara Landau. You can read them here.
After her oral presentation on November 26th, Ms. Landau made further written submissions, which you can read here.
