Commencing December 18, 2023, the Court of King’s Bench implemented four (4) mandatory pre-court requirements as part of the Alberta Justice Family Justice Strategy. These mandatory requirements, which are summarized here, will only apply in Edmonton and Calgary. As more resources become available, it is anticipated that they will be expanded to Judicial Centres throughout the Province.
