Matrilaw is a Ontario family law blog created by Donald Kilpatrick, a London lawyer.
Amending legislation is not easy. What may make the difference is the support of lawyers, law associations and law profs across the province, so please send a letter to Mr. Doug Downey. If you want to cc me, as well, there will be a way to gauge the support this initiative is receiving. Also, could you please forward the matrilaw.com URL to those of your colleagues who may find this of interest.
My name is Donald Kilpatrick. I am a family law lawyer in London and was called to the bar in 1976. My practice has been primarily in the area of family law since 1986, including child representation which I did from 1977 until 2013. In recent years I have contributed to “McLeod’s Ontario Family Law Rules Annotated” published annually by Thomson Reuters.
