Enhanced Notice of Relocation & Notice of Objection to Relocation forms (Divorce Act amendments) (78 downloads)

The amendments to the Divorce Act come into force in two months on March 1, 2021. Those amendments, summarized here and here, include the establishment of a new regime to notify of and object to relocations of children. While new Notice of Relocation Regulations were registered in November, I haven't seen any actual forms be circulated yet, and the minimum information that must be included in the Regulation's forms is fairly sparse.

I've drafted a precedent form based on the Regulations, which also adds additional information to warn parents of the consequences of each form, to make them more likely to take the form seriously, to help parents complete each form in a fulsome manner, and to bring to their attention that the Court can modify service requirements (eg where there is a risk of violence).

There's also a Form 3 for persons with ordered contact to notify of their relocation, but I didn't draft that one. I'll leave that to someone else.
