You may have some additional time to read given the pandemic-related closures, so I've attached the 2020 171-page update to my 2017 paper, which was previously titled the Family Chambers Procedure Manual.
It's the manual which addresses over 60 different court procedures. Each procedure is broken down by case law and practical suggestions. It's meant to help assist lawyers with the preparation of applications, affidavits, and arguments. In the 2020 update, there's now a separate subheading within each application setting out any special treatment in the family law realm.
Most of the new content was written by our newest associate Colin Basaraba, who did a phenomenal job. There are several new or expanded topics, and most topics have been revised to reflect updated case law, practice points, or legislation.
The 2020 update was presented at ACTLA’s “Weapons in Chambers” seminar on March 12, 2020 in Edmonton, and March 10, 2020 in Calgary.
