New BC Family Law Act Lawyer Lorne MacLean

The BC Liberals have proposed sweeping new changes to the Family Relations Act with a new Bill called the Family Law Act.

We will review the changes as the weeks go by and the legislature debates important new concepts regarding parenting time and contact instead of custody and access, the enhanced rights of common law spouses, the exclusion of certain types of property such as premarital assets and inheritances and a NEW focus on ways to resolve family breakdowns outside of court.  We have 4 offices and 10 lawyers and we are fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Punjabi and Hindi and Farsi as well as English. Different strategies apply as to whether you should use the existing law or wait for the new law to take effect.  Call us so you are not prejudiced toll free at 1-877-602-9900.
