Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the member's comments in respect of the debate we are having.
I would like to emphasize that, under the bill, no one is obligated to consult a lawyer.
In fact, through two very specific measures, the bill seeks to do just the opposite. It seeks to ensure that no one is obligated to consult a lawyer. First of all, it states that child support can be calculated as part of the administrative process—in other words, outside the courts and without having to consult any lawyers. Second, if child support needs to be recalculated because some adjustments are needed, that can also be done without consulting a lawyer.
Our ultimate goal is to make the family justice system less contentious than it is now.
That is why we have already listened to stakeholders from across the country. They see this bill as a good reform of the family justice system, which has not been updated in 20 years.
I am wondering if the member across the aisle could be more specific regarding his concerns. I do not believe that the bill will have quite that effect.
