Jointly presented by The Law Society of Manitoba, Court of Queen’s Bench Family Division Judges and the Manitoba Bar Association, Family Law Section
Is there legalized polygamy in Manitoba? Family structures have changed since the days of the traditional family …husband, wife, 2 kids and a dog. So has our life expectancy. Together these changes have necessitated changes in how the law treats families. The end results are some interesting legal scenarios that weren’t contemplated by lawyers and the courts 25 years ago.
This program looked at issues that arise at the intersection of family law and death, including: situations where there are concurrent spousal and child support obligations; clauses to consider in agreements when contemplating death; resulting trust and the presumption of advancement; grandparent guardianship and grandparent access; Hague Convention issues and much more.
