Covid-19 Update from Kits Family Law

We at the Kitsilano Family Law Group, take our staff and clients’ safety and well being seriously. The health and safety of everyone is of the utmost importance, so beginning March 18, 2020, the Kitsilano Family Law Group has begun taking measures to ensure that we can remain available to the public during these uncertain times with the Covid-19 pandemic.

We assure you that we remain open during the Covid-19 pandemic. We want to assure you that we are able to work remotely and have access to all relevant and necessary documents from your file. 

Please be aware that all three levels of court have greatly reduced operations during the pandemic. Only urgent matters are proceeding at this time. 

Please feel free to contact us with any questions. However, we will be largely working remotely, so the best way to reach us is by email. We will also, given the state of emergency that has been declared in BC, not be conducting any more in person meetings. We are, of course, available to meet either by phone or over Skype or Zoom. Please feel free to contact us by email if you would like to set either up.

We wish you and your families all the best.
