Supporting You in Practice
We are excited to bring you a number of skills based CPD opportunities, available to BC lawyers everywhere via webinar.
WOMEN AND FAMILY LAW
Parenting Time and Parenting Responsibilities
Monday June 27, 2016
12:00 pm – 1:30 pm (PDT)
In this webinar we will explore recent changes to family law in BC and their impacts on the parenting experiences of women with abusive or harassing exes.
Our guest speaker, Zara Suleman, will consider some common legal challenges including parenting assessment reports, denial of parenting time, relocating with a child, and litigation harassment. Zara will offer lawyers and frontline service providers who assist women fleeing abuse with effective strategies to cope with and address these issues.
Zara practices family law and fertility law and she is also a certified family law mediator and collaborative law practitioner. Zara has worked as an independent legal researcher and consultant and was also the Director of the Family Law Project for the West Coast Women's Legal Education & Action Fund (WCLEAF).
