MyLawBC is built and maintained by Legal Aid BC. It gives you the tools you need to identify, manage, and resolve your legal problems in BC.
Guided pathways use an interactive question-and-answer approach to guide you to a solution to your legal problem.
MyLawBC asks you questions about your situation. MyLawBC then generates a plan for you based on your answers. This plan gives you the background information you need to work through your legal problem. It'll tell you what you need to do now and do next. And it'll let you know where you can get more help.
We have guided pathways to help you with:
Make a parenting plan about decision-making for your child and living arrangements. You and the other parent will be guided through the steps, and can ask for a coach to help you. After you've both proposed an initial parenting plan, you can ask for a professional family law mediator to help you, at no cost to you, if one of you lives in BC.
You'll get a downloadable parenting plan to print out and sign.
Change or make new child support agreements or orders with help from a professional mediator. You and the other parent will get help from a professional family law mediator for up to five hours, at no cost to you, if one of you lives in BC.
Make a separation agreement without the help of a mediator. You and your ex will be guided through the steps and will both decide what's important for your children, money, home, and other property.
You'll get a downloadable separation agreement to print out and sign.
We're also a registered Canadian charity, created by the Legal Services Society Act in 1979. We use donations from people like you to provide services to vulnerable and marginalized people and improve access to justice for all British Columbians.
