This revised booklet is now available in Arabic, traditional Chinese, English, Farsi, French, Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese in print and online. Now in its third edition, this popular publication explains the basics of family law in BC, and includes information about living common-law or being married, the process for separation and divorce, how to work out custody, support, and access issues if there are children involved, and how to sort out money matters. It also describes legal options and where to get help. We’ve tweaked the content (minor clarifications) here and there, updated the LSS information, and added new resources.
French translation was provided by the Francophone Affairs Program, Intergovernmental Relations Secretariat. The French translation was supported by the Canada-British Columbia Cooperation Agreement on Official Languages. Translation and production of Arabic, Chinese (traditional), Farsi (Persian), Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese was provided by MOSAIC, with the help of a grant from the Law Foundation of BC.
