20 - Family Court (Canada), with Audra Bayer
If you're considering heading off to family court, listen to this episode and consider first whether you have any better options for resolution. Court should be the last resort! It's often best used in scenarios involving a person with serious mental health or substance abuse issues which make voluntary and reasonable dispute resolution impossible. I talk to Audra Bayer about the experience of family court in Canada.
Audra has been practising law in Manitoba since 2000 and British Columbia since 2012 and has built a strong and reputable practice. She is a senior lawyer, and member of the management committee with MacLean Law responsible for HR administration and other responsibilities.
