The federal government introduced into the House of Commons on 22 May 2018 - Bill C-78 - which would implement changes to the Divorce Act. While this is indeed a welcome step, this Bill will hopefully be significantly improved so that the lives of children ensnared in divorce will be substantially improved. Find Bill C-78 here.

It was four years prior to the introduction of the government Bill, on 28 May 2014, when the Commons defeated at 2nd Reading Private Members Bill C-560. This private member's Bill would have created a legislated presumption in favour of Equal Shared Parenting. If the bill had passed 2nd reading, it would have been referred to Committee for study. CLICK HERE for information about the Bill. The Family Rights Movement is renewing its efforts to have a legislated rebuttable presumption for Equal Shared Parenting.
