Before you see Provincial Court family duty counsel

Before you go to a family duty counsel office, it’s a good idea to read and complete an Acknowledgement of Duty Counsel Services form. If you give the completed form to the lawyer when you first meet, the lawyer can spend more time providing you with legal advice.

The acknowledgement form tells you what the duty counsel lawyer can do for you, and gives the lawyer permission to share your information with the Legal Aid BC for evaluation or audit purposes. 

You can print the Acknowledgement of Duty Counsel Services form from this website or pick up the form from duty counsel or your local court registry (call the registry first to make sure the form is available).
