While we generally recommend trying to resolve family matters outside of court, sometimes going to court is the best option.  This is particularly true where there is a history of family violence, where one party threatens to hide or dispose of property, one party threatens to move the children or where parties cannot reach a settlement or compromise through negotiation or other methods.  Depending on your circumstances and what you need, we can help you decide which court is most appropriate for your case (British Columbia Supreme Court, or British Columbia Provincial Court).

Going to court generally involves higher legal fees due to the formality required by the Rules of Court that guide the conduct of the parties, including completing required forms, documentation, procedures and practices leading up to, during, and after a Court hearing or trial.
