F v N: A Discussion
Two Halton area lawyers were granted leave to appeal the family law case known as F v N at the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC). They discuss the details of the case and offer insight into how they were preparing for their day at Canada’s highest court.
The case touched on the principle of “best interests of the child” in international parenting orders.
Among the topics discussed are:
- What is leave to appeal to the SCC and under what circumstances is it granted?
- What is a dissenting judge?
- What is the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction?
- What are Interveners and what is their role?
