The Law Society of Upper Canada Special Lectures 2006: Family Law is of exceptional benefit to family lawyers. This area of law has changed dramatically in the past few years — the Family Law Rules came into effect, the definition of “spouse” has changed, Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines were introduced, and the Ontario Court of Appeal addressed retroactive support, shared custody, and the finality of domestic contracts. This book explores groundbreaking developments in child support, spousal support, domestic contracts, faith-based tribunals, resulting trusts, and numerous other subjects including the Family Law Statute Amendment Act, 2006 and international convention law. The authors of the papers provide thought-provoking, yet pragmatic, observations of current issues. This is the first Special Lectures devoted exclusively to family law since 1999.
