PROCEDURAL ASPECTS OF ARRANGEMENTS FOR CHILDREN UPON DIVORCE IN CANADA
AbstractThe traditional adversarial system has, come under considerable criticism from a variety of circles, both legal and non-legal, for its alleged inability to accommodate the human and evidentiary aspects of custody disputes.

Concerns over the traditional model have led to, responsive adjustments in many of the country's divorce courts.

Notwithstanding these advances, however, the article closes with the observation that further reforms are still warranted in the service of children of divorce.
