For Consultation: Proposed Changes to Family Practice Notes 7 & 8

Jul 31, 2018

Following extensive meetings of a working group comprised of members of the Court, Family Law bar and psychologists/social workers, the Court is seeking feedback on proposed revisions to Practice Note 7 & 8. Feedback may be provided in writing to Family.QB@albertacourts.ca by August 31, 2018.

The proposed revisions to the Practice Notes are summarized in the document below. The aim of the proposed revisions is to enable Interventions and Evaluations to be conducted as early and efficiently as possible in order to promote earlier resolution of family conflict; and where possible, to reduce the need for Court applications and orders in family law matters.

We look forward to receiving your feedback.
