Talk:Case Conferences in a Family Law Matter
Check the alignment of the top of the first para - format issue.
Have the SCC Rules been updated to reflect the Ministry of Justice's name change? Or does it not matter? (identified as MAG)
As a result of time constraints, this page only contains information about JCCs and FCCs in its originally published form. It would be really helpful if this page could be expanded to talk about TMCs and Settlement Conferences in the Supreme Court, and PTCs in the Provincial Court.
Ideally, the information on TMCs and PTCs would talk about how to prepare, materials to bring, the brief required by the SCFR etc, and the the information on Settlement Conferences would talk about briefs, materials, to bring, how to prepare, tips for reaching settlement and so on.

Normally referred to as the "Supreme Court of British Columbia," this court hears most of the trials in this province. The Supreme Court is a court of inherent jurisdiction and has no limits on the sorts of claims it can hear or on the sorts of orders it can make. Decisions of the Provincial Court are appealed to the Supreme Court; decisions of the Supreme Court are appealed to the Court of Appeal. See "Court of Appeal," "jurisdiction," "Provincial Court" and "Supreme Court of Canada."
A court established and staffed by the provincial government, which includes Small Claims Court, Youth Court, and Family Court. The Provincial Court is the lowest level of court in British Columbia and is restricted in the sorts of matters it can deal with. It is, however, the most accessible of the two trial courts and no fees are charged to begin or defend a family law proceeding. The Family Court of the Provincial Court cannot deal with the division of family property or any claims under the Divorce Act. See "Divorce Act," "judge" and "jurisdiction."
