Family Relations Act Review Update

Readers will recall the review of the Family Relations Act begun by the Attorney General's office in 2007. As mentioned in a post last year, work on the project has continued behind the scenes following the end of the AG's public consultations.

I have learned that the AG is due to release a white paper in June summarizing amendments that will be made to the Family Relations Act as well as options for amendments which may be made to the act. Will there be another opportunity for public comment before the bill is tabled in the legislature?
