Summary
"This report summarizes the responses the ministry received during public consultations on reform of the Family Relations Act held in 2007 and 2008. These consultations concerned comprehensive reform of most parts of the province's main family law statute, addressing three BCLI projects in the process. These projects concerned division of pensions on marriage breakdown, parental support, and conflict of laws."--BC Law Reform Group website as viewed April 27, 2009: http://www.bcli.org/bclrg/news/2009/04/ministry-attorney-general-releases-family-relations-act-consultation-report
