Raising happy, healthy and well-adjusted children is one of the most important jobs a parent has. Family law tools in Alberta can help parents do that, even when parents are separated or divorced. Children adjust to changes in their own ways, but it is helpful when parents are able to help their kids to positively process those changes.
A spur-of-the-moment marriage that took place in one of the world's most famous gambling capitals is not only on the rocks, but the couple – who married in 2016 – is also embroiled in a nasty court battle. The British Columbia couple's family law case has not only been heard in family court, but has also come before three B.C. Supreme Court judges who will rule on the man's attempt to undo his former wife's lower court victory.
Love stories begin in many ways. You may know happily married couples who dated since high school and others who married after a whirlwind romance. Periodically, you may hear of a new study where researchers are trying to find what factors make a marriage last and what are the common reasons for divorce.
A marital breakdown can be difficult in the best of circumstances and many people facing divorce may be impacted by this life-altering happening in a number of ways. Thankfully, British Columbia residents have family law tools at their disposal to help them through what may be one of the most trying times in their lives. A new study has found that those going through a divorce may be impacted healthwise.
There may be nothing more difficult for some children to endure than the divorce of their parents. When it comes to children's issues in Alberta, divorce is high on the list of things that can wreak havoc for kids, but since teachers play an integral part in children's lives, they may be able to help in these often emotionally-tough situations for their students whose parents are facing divorce. Often, children will open up to a trusted teacher with whom they feel safe.
When parents' marriages end in divorce, often children are caught in the middle. When it comes to children's issues in Alberta, although parents are obligated to children's best interests first, there may be times when one parent pits the children against the other. This may be something that causes parental alienation and which makes custody issues even more tenuous.
Couples who are married or who are living together and decide to end their relationships have many issues to consider, and one is how to divide what they jointly own. When couples decide to divorce or to separate and they own property, they must discuss the division of property as part of a divorce settlement or separation agreement. In British Columbia the same rules apply to couples who are married and those who have been in a common law union for two or more years.
There may be many reasons couples find themselves in trouble relationship-wise. It might be that there has been a history of bad treatment or abuse. Family law in Alberta helps couples to end their relationships or marriages, but when one partner is an bully, breaking up can be even harder to do. Agreeing on a separation agreement when one person is displaying bullying behaviour might have its own set of challenges.
It can be a particularly difficult time for kids when they learn that their parents are divorcing. When it comes to children's issues in British Columbia, family court judges will always make decisions that take into account what is in the best interests of the children involved. But, what does that really mean? It might help parents to get some clarification.
An immigrant will be having his citizenship revoked for a marriage faux pas. British Columbia and other Canadian provinces and territories do not forgive violations of family law or criminal law lightly. Even so, the federal government rarely revokes citizenship once granted, but it is revoking the citizenship of a Chinese man it says secured his citizenship through a false marriage nine years ago. The government claims the man was in an alleged marriage of convenience to obtain Canadian citizenship.
