Effective July 20, 2015, an online Parenting After Separation seminar will be available to family litigants in Alberta. The Online Seminar is located at: http://pas.albertacourts.ab.ca/
As a result of this new program, Court of Queen’s Bench Family Practice Note 1 is amended, effective July 20, 2015. The amended Practice Note is located under the Family Practice Notes tab on the Court of Queen’s Bench Website, at: https://albertacourts.ca/court-of-queens-bench/practice-notes
The amendments to Family Practice Note 1 broaden its geographic scope. Where formerly parties were required to attend the Parenting After Separation seminar only if they lived in St. Paul, Brooks, Calgary, Camrose, Drumheller, Edmonton, Edson, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Hinton, Jasper, Lethbridge, Lloydminster, Medicine Hat, Peace River, Red Deer, Slave Lake and Wetaskiwin, or within 150 kilometres of any of those cities or towns, Family Practice Note 1 now applies to all litigants in Alberta, regardless of where they live. All family litigants now have the option of completing the traditional Parenting After Separation seminar, or the Online Seminar.
