|| Welcome to page one of the Specific Communities and Family Law chapter. Other parts in this chapter are: Aboriginals · Immigrants · LGBT
While family law has evolved to treat many minority groups, such as same-sex couples, in the same way as it treats the majority, this is not always true. Specific communities are sometimes subject to different laws in certain circumstances. The resource you’re reading has been updated to explain and give recognition to the ways some laws apply differently to specific communities. This chapter deals with unique ways the law applies to aboriginals and/or those living on reserves, immigrants and those who support or rely on them, and the LGBT community.
