The Queen’s Bench Act 1998 has been amended to require parties to certain family law applications to participate in dispute resolution at the close of pleadings, if they have not already done so before initiating the court application. The amendments will be proclaimed once Regulations have been passed. The Regulations will set out the process of applying for exemptions, and what types of dispute resolution will satisfy the requirements. This is expected to happen in the upcoming year. Join us to learn more about these changes to family law practice.
