ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The authors of this report would like to express gratitude to the parents in Alberta who agreed to take part in this study. Their willingness to participate in lengthy interviews, and to discuss personal matters in an open and thoughtful manner, made the research possible, and has made a real contribution to efforts to develop family law policies that will serve the interests of children in Canada. We would also like to acknowledge the assistance provided by the Ministry of the Attorney General in Alberta and officers of the family courts in Edmonton and Calgary in providing access to divorce case files for our interview sample. Finally, we would like to express appreciation to Sharon Moyer at Moyer & Associates, and the Family, Children and Youth Section at the Department of Justice Canada, for advice and guidance in planning the research and producing this report.
