Separation and divorce is already stressful, and physical distancing and financial uncertainty due to COVID-19 adds another layer of anxiety.
MyLawBC can help you with your family law issues during the pandemic. In addition to making a separation plan, getting family orders, and dealing with court documents, our services include helping you with a parenting plan and creating a separation agreement. Our services are all online, and we'll give you links to other helpful online or phone-based services. Please see Online access to justice for more help.
No matter where you are in your separation process, MyLawBC can help. These guided pathways ask you questions about your situation and give you the best available resources, based on your answers. You'll get a downloadable PDF action plan with information and links to self-help guides free publications, and where you can get legal advice and help.
In some unhealthy relationships, one person has more power than the other. This can affect how well you and your partner communicate and cooperate as you separate. And it can show up as abusive behaviours. Your and your family's safety may be at risk.
If you're worried about a power imbalance, it's a good idea to go through our Abuse and family violence pathway first to get resources that may help your situation.
If you're concerned about being isolated with an abusive partner because of the pandemic, please see COVID-19 updates – abuse & family violence on the Family Law in BC website.
