If you can't agree with the other party

How to enforce a parenting agreement or order

You must enforce a parenting agreement or order in the court (Provincial or Supreme) where it was originally filed.

Before using these guides

Staying out of court

Before you start using these guides, think about your situation. Is it possible that you and the other party can agree about your parenting issues?

If you can agree, you won't have to go to court and a judge or master won't have to enforce your agreement or order.

If you must go to court — Choose Provincial or Supreme Court

If you:

  • have tried to resolve your issues on your own and can't, or
  • have tried to resolve your issues with the help of a mediator or other service and can't, or
  • don't think it will be possible to resolve your issues,

you can apply for a court order to enforce your parenting order in either the Provincial (Family) Court of British Columbia or the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

Once you've decided which court is the right one, select the link below that applies to you to go to the self-help guide.
