When you work with the ministry on your child’s plan of care, there are different stages in the process. Whether you’re participating in mediation, scheduling a family case conference, or waiting for a court hearing, the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis could affect your next steps. Most operations of the Provincial Court of British Columbia are suspended at all locations until at least May 16, 2020. You should have received a notification about your new court date.
If you’re scheduled for a child protection case conference, your child has been removed and you have a date for a court hearing, you aren’t sure whether you’re at a hearing or conference stage, or if you need help with your case, the Aboriginal Legal Aid in BC legal questions has information that can help. If you think your matter is urgent, you can fill out an application for an urgent hearing and then email or mail it to your local registry, or fax to fax filing registries.
If you still have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
