Family Court Rules

What was this engagement about?

The Provincial Court Family Rules (the rules) are used to manage cases and resolve issues within the jurisdiction of the provincial court (parenting arrangements, child support, contact with a child, guardianship of a child and spousal support). The rules also apply to enforcement of child and spousal support under the Family Maintenance Enforcement Act (FMEA).

How will my contribution make a difference?

The Ministry of Attorney General and the Provincial Court of British Columbia invite comments on the proposed new Provincial Court Family Rules and forms. Feedback will be considered in finalizing the rules, which will be reviewed with the Provincial Court Family Rules Working Group and Steering Committee, the Chief Judge and eventually prepared as an Order in Council for consideration by cabinet.
