Common-Law Relationships, Marriage, Separation, and Divorce

Explains the basics of family law in BC. Includes information about:

    • being married or in a marriage-like relationship (also called a common-law relationship),
    • what separation and divorce mean,
    • how to work out arrangements for parenting if you have children, and
    • how to sort out money matters.

Also explains your legal options and where to get help, and includes a chapter for Aboriginal families. Updated to conform to the new BC Family Law Act (March 18, 2013). We also wrote a 2nd article, quite similar to this one, which can be found by clicking HERE.
