Product Description

Canadian Family Law provides expert insight into a wide variety of legal issues that confront Canadian families today. The seventh edition of Canadian Family Law, current to 30 June 2017, brings its readers up-to-date with every notable trial and appellate decision decided since the publication of the sixth edition, with particular attention being paid to appellate rulings. Of particular note, is the addition of new material dealing with the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines and the responses of Canadian courts thereto. The textual commentary will be of particular interest to judges, legal practitioners, mediators, arbitrators and other professionals who require an understanding of the law related to families. It also provides a unique source of information for law students and their professors. The seventh edition of Canadian Family Law is a companion volume to Payne and Payne, Child Support Guidelines in Canada, 2017. Previous editions of both of these texts have been cited on hundreds of occasions in courts across Canada, including the Supreme Court of Canada.
