Yes, there are evidence “rules” that have real application in family law cases! There are also fundamental purposes that evidence law must serve in family law cases, including the need for accuracy, efficiency and fairness; reducing conflict; maintaining and encouraging family relationships; and, ensuring the best interest of the child. Knowing the rules and the principles they serve can make an important difference in your ability to anticipate the rulings you will require and as a result, the decisions you make about preparing your evidence and your witnesses. In this convenient, highly practical program, noted Law Professor Rollie Thompson, Q.C. breaks down some of the evidentiary issues that most frequently arise in family law cases.
