Same Sex Divorce in British Columbia

Kevin Heinrichs of Henderson Heinrichs was featured in a recent article in the Vancouver Province by Stephanie Ip and Keith Fraser regarding same sex divorce in British Columbia.  With the advent of the Civil Marriage of Non-Residents Act, same sex couples married in British Columbia who are unable to get a divorce where they reside can apply for that divorce in British Columbia without the previously required one year residence.  Heinrichs' point in the article is that, while there might be a brief spike in these types of divorces, any built up backlog of qualified parties will soon be dealt with and it will soon be business as usual.
