*changing orders about custody, access, child support, and spousal support.
[https://www.parl.ca/LegisInfo/BillDetails.aspx?Language=E&billId=9868788 Bill C-78] will change how we talk about parenting after separation, and the things the court thinks about when making orders about parenting after separation. It will also impose new duties on married spouses and lawyers to try to resolve problems out of court before deciding that a problem has to be litigated. It will create a new way to change orders about child support and spousal support when one or both spouses have moved to different provinces. And, there's a new test to help decide what should happen when someone wants to move away with a child.
The other parts of the ''Divorce Act'' about divorce, foreign divorce orders, and making and changing orders about child support and spousal support aren't changing much at all .
Remember, the ''Divorce Act'' only applies to people who are, or were, legally married to each other. If you never married your partner, the ''Divorce Act'' doesn't apply to you, no matter how long you lived together. Any legal problems you have can only be dealt with under the provincial ''[[Family Law Act]]''.
