Home court advantage: Creating a family law process that works. Final report and recommendations from the Home Court Advantage summit

This report documents recommendations from a two-day summit held in November 2009 to discuss the family law reforms contained in an April 2009 submission to the Attorney General (Supporting Families to Support their Children) as well as reforms proposed in a 2007 OBA report (Recapturing and Renewing the Vision of the Family Court). The final goal was to reach consensus on reforms for Ontario and provide recommendations to the Attorney General to shift the way family law is practiced in Ontario. The Attorney General’s four pillars of change that guided the summit were (1) providing early information for separating spouses and children, (2) assessing parties and directing them to appropriate services using triage, (3) facilitating greater access to legal information, advice, and alternative dispute resolution processes, and (4) developing a streamlined and focused family court process. The report includes detailed appendices with speaker notes and summaries of recommendations.
