Going through a marriage or partnership break-up can often be stressful, if you have shared children, housing, bank accounts and real estate that stress level is elevated. We have added some helpful materials here to get you started and supported in the legal system.
Our agency does boast several programs that can either give you direction or hands-on support. Specialized Victim Support Services and Police Based Victim Services through Powell River Community Services Association can support you through the system, and the Poverty Law Advocate (also a program of the PRCSA) can help you with filling out forms for Ministry use.
To start with, we have provided some handy website addresses so you can do some searching on your own. The first one will lead you to the Powell River Court Services site. Through here you can check on the criminal lists for Wednesday mornings. The Family Court and Juvenile Court lists are not available here, you will have to go to the courthouse to check, or talk to your lawyer for appearance dates.
