What’s new on the Family Law in BC website: Enhanced self-help guides

It’s been more than a year since our last Family Law website update, so it’s high time for another. We’re planning to start providing these updates more frequently. Here’s the first one, describing how we’ve enhanced our self-help guides over this past year.

We had a number of people ask us why our popular divorce guides don’t contain links to the required forms all in one place, so we added a list of all the relevant court forms for each guide (with links) to:

  • Step 1 of the sole divorce guide
  • Step 1 of the joint divorce guide

In October 2010, we added two new self-help guides to the site:

We created the first of these guides to respond to a much-repeated request over the years for a guide that dealt with consent orders in Provincial Court. We created the second guide for respondents in maintenance enforcement committal proceedings facing a risk of jail because the July 2009 changes to our coverage guidelines meant they could no longer get legal aid representation.

In our next update, we’ll tell you about our newest frequently asked questions. In the meantime, why not take a look at the site for yourself to see what else is new?
