Regulation Amended: Family Law Act Regulation adjusted for guardianship applications

In my post "Amendments Amended: Rules of Court adjusted for guardianship applications," I mentioned that the Provincial Court Family Rules and the Supreme Court Family Rules had been amended to accommodate the unpleasant requirements of s. 51(2) of the Family Law Act for persons applying for appointment as the guardian of a child. My colleague Kathleen Packard has supplied the link I was missing to the amendments that were also made to the Family Law Act Regulation.

Here's a summary of the amendments:
  • Order in Council 66-2013 amends the Provincial Court Family Rules to provide a new rule, Rule 18.1, and a new form of affidavit, Form 34, for guardianship applications. 
  • Order in Council 67-2013 amends the Supreme Court Family Rules to provide a new rule, Rule 15-2.1, and a new form of affidavit, Form F101, for guardianship applications.
  • Order in Council 68-2013 amends the Family Law Act Regulation to provide a new form, Form 5, to apply for child protection records checks, as required by the new Provincial Court and Supreme Court rules.
