  • setting aside a separation agreement,
  • making a fair agreement,
  • preparing your financial statement for court, and
  • managing your case and working with a lawyer.

It also lists where to get free legal help, including publications, court forms, fact sheets, and other comprehensive family law resources available on the LSS Family Law in BC website.

Separation Agreements: Your Right to Fairness is now available in English in print and online, and will be available in spring 2014 in simplified and traditional Chinese, Punjabi, Spanish, and Tagalog.
