LSS Begins Blog Series on Family Law Act

The Legal Services Society, the organization that provides legal aid in British Columbia, today published the first of an ongoing series of blog posts about the Family Law Act on its Electronic Legal Aid News website. (ELAN is aimed at community workers but is accessible by everyone.) This is how the project is described:
"Over the next few months, we will run a series of ELAN blog entries to describe some of the important changes coming to family law in BC as a result of this new act. In addition to the changes listed above, these entries will describe the changes to the law about:
  • the language used in family law cases (e.g., changes to terms like custody and access)
  • agreements (and when they can be set aside)
  • how children’s best interests are considered in parenting disputes
  • guardianship
  • property and pension division, and the division of debts
  • child support and spousal support
  • protection orders (restraining orders)
  • court process and enforcement of orders"
