Hot Off the Press: How to Become Child’s Guardian

We’ve revised and reprinted How to Become a Child’s Guardian. This fact sheet describes who is a guardian and the requirements for becoming a child’s guardian. Anyone can apply to become a guardian, including a parent who isn’t a guardian or any other relative or non-relative. The fact sheet also has links to self-help guides on the Family Law in BC website that will help you with your application and links to additional forms you’ll need.
