The No-Longer-So-New Relocation Laws

Paula Puddy, HBA LLB MBA

This County of Carleton Law Association (CCLA) seminar is presented by Professor Rollie Thompson, and covers the revised relocation laws. He delves into changes in divorce, the Children’s Law Reform Act (CLRA), and explains the nuances of relocation decisions citing case law, including Barendregt v Grebliunas

Professor Rollie Thompson identifies common errors in the new laws, clarifying distinctions between "change of residence" and "relocation." The presenter examines the mandatory notice provision, detailing where the burden of proof lies, and the role parenting time plays in relocation disputes. 

Challenges like interim moves, the double-bind question, and coercive family violence are addressed. Professor Rollie Thompson also discusses the gendered impact in relocation cases, including national trends, and how they affect court decisions.
