How to Become a Child's Guardian (English)

How to Become a Child's Guardian (English)

This fact sheet describes the new BC Family Law Act requirements for anyone applying to court to become a child's guardian. Anyone who wants to become a guardian can apply, including a parent who isn't a guardian, or any other person (relative or non-relative).

The fact sheet includes:

  • links to the self-help guides on the Family Law in BC website that you can use to help you with the application process, and
  • links to additional forms that you need to fill out.

It also contains information about the Extended Family Program, which may be a better option for those people who want to temporarily look after relatives' or friends' child because the Ministry of Children and Family Development is involved with the family.
