Three family law cases from the Supreme Court of Canada were examined in a series of case bulletins because they profile issues in family law since the amended Divorce Act (2021) came into force.

Part 1: Michel v Graydon, September 2020 SCC 24 (CanLii): Financial abuse issue

Part 2: Colucci v. Colucci, June 2021 SCC 24 (CanLii): Child support issue

Part 3: Barendregt v. Grebliunas, December 2, 2021 (CanLii): Relocation issue

These Bulletins were prepared by Dr. Margaret Jackson Director of the FREDA Centre, and Professor Emerita School of Criminology, Simon Fraser University on behalf of the Alliance of Canadian Research Centres on Gender-Based Violence.

The Case Bulletins can also be found in the ‘Violence Against Women and Children and the Law’ section of the Reports page.
