Registration of Divorce Proceedings (Form)
Due to important changes in family law, some of the information in JP Boyd on Family Law is out-of-date, especially information about Provincial Court (rules, forms, and procedures), parenting after separation and moving away after separation under the Divorce Act. We are working on a new edition. Read more under:
|*CAUTION Several Supreme Court Family Forms changed format as of 25 January 2021 and 1 March 2021. See the BC Government's announcement for more details. Accordingly, some examples of completed forms have been removed until editors can revise them.|
The Registration of Divorce Proceedings form must be completed and filed with the BC Supreme Court registry at the time a divorce proceeding is commenced. In October 2013, British Columbia Supreme Court registries changed their practice of completing these forms for people. You now have to complete the form yourself, and the registry will send the paperwork to the Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings in Ottawa.
