COVID-19 Family Law Resources & the Collaborative Process

Our thanks to Hannah M. DeJong of Boughton Law, who has made navigating the coronavirus pandemic easier for separating families by compiling information into a resource guide entitled COVID-19 Family Law Resources (BC).  The guide contains general information and is not meant as legal advice.

Hannah mentions a specific MediateBC program as one consensual dispute resolution process families in British Columbia can use during the pandemic. The Collaborative Process is another option for families (the Collaborative Divorce Vancouver Society in the Lower Mainland).  The Legal Services Society lists a number of other resources and consensual dispute resolution processes. They also have a list of Collaborative practice groups throughout BC.
