Do not miss our panel of experts explain important developments in the law of international return order cases, in both Hague and non-Hague matters. The panelists will discuss the distinctions between these cases, developing law and recent case law. Most notably, the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in F. v N., will be addressed, given its significant impact on how future non-Hague cases are argued. The impact of the new notice provisions in the Family Law Rules and the unique role of children aid societies in some of these cases will also be addressed.
