On June 21, 2019 Parliament made changes to the Divorce Act that affect family dispute resolution. ‘Family dispute resolution process’ is a new term in the Divorce Act. It is used to describe a number of out-of-court processes families can use to solve issues such as parenting, child support, and for some families, property issues. This webinar will overview the changes in early dispute resolution process prior to being able to proceed with a court application in the Family Law Division of the Court of Queen's Bench in Saskatchewan. The first implementation of the mandatory provisions has begun in Prince Albert and will slowly be implemented across the province.  Social workers need to understand the impact these new laws could have upon their clients who may be struggling with separation and/or divorce.   This webinar will highlight the new laws and explain the process options from which clients will need to choose and is applicable to social workers across Canada
