When spouses or parents live in different provinces or countries they must follow special procedures to get or change child support and spousal support orders. A recent eNews article explained how to apply for or change a support order, or apply to cancel or reduce support arrears, when the other party lives outside BC.
How do you get a child support or spousal support order if the other parent or spouse lives outside BC? And how do you have an existing support order changed if the other party doesn’t live here?
You’ve filed an application in BC Provincial Court, asking for an order under the Family Law Act, or you’ve filed a reply to an application. Then you went to court for a First Appearance and the judge directed that you come back for a Family Case Conference on a future date. What happens at a Case Conference? How should you prepare?
In a recent eNews article Chris took Dan to Small Claims court and got a payment order for Dan to repay a $7000 loan, but Dan didn’t pay. When they went back to court for a payment hearing, Chris was ordered to make payments of $500 a month. He paid for a while and then stopped. What can Chris do now to collect the balance still owing?
When Dan was having a tough time, his friend Chris lent him $7,000. When Dan got back on his feet he promised to repay the loan but didn’t, so Chris finally sued Dan in Small Claims Court. The judge made a payment order that Dan pay $7000 plus interest and expenses to Chris. Dan still hasn’t paid.
