Canadian family court Judges and family courts consumer survey

This survey is to gather reliable statistics about the performance of Canadian family court judges and the family court system in general from the perspective of persons who have been a party in a family court anywhere in Canada. This survey will also gather statistics on the tru and confidence that Canadians have in the family court system. Due to the significant adverse impact that the family courts are having on children and families right across Canada, this specific survey focuses only on the family court system.

These conferences are not courts but meetings at the court presided over by a judge in which parties try to resolve their differences. Many question the need of these conferences which cost the taxpayers significant amounts of money. If you or your lawyer participated in a conference then please answer the following questions.
