Editorial Team and Advisory Panel

Other People

A team and advisory panel have assisted JP Boyd in migrating and updating the [ BC Family Law Resource]. This is a test of the Lingo extension (see Terminology):

Acting out of caution and concern for the well being of honest citizens, the Act government introduced an Act (def) to protect against fraud by dishonest would-be immigrants. An Action could be brought to strike out the laws, but a test case is needed. On a related point, Proof that a Marriage was entered into fraudulently may be grounds for Divorce and a Declaration by the courts that the marriage be deemed Null and Void, Ab Initio.

An Infant may not commence an Action, except with the aid of a guardian ad litem, who may or may not be a Guardian. Pundits warn that Hearsay may soon be expanded to include any testimony by witnesses who use social media.
