Abstract: Jillian Ridington and Ruth Busch have put together a laywoman's guide to the new Family Relations Act of British Columbia. This is an 8 page newspaper which gives the reader an overview of the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Family and Children's Law headed by Justice Thomas Berger.
The newspaper also deals with some of the more frequently asked questions and shows how the Act either answers or does not answer the specific concerns of women in British Columbia. The final page lists the many places in British Columbia that offer legal assistance pertaining to the new Family Relations Act.
