Temporary Foreign Worker Divorce Clinic

The Amici Curiae Pro Bono Paralegal Programme is expanding its services to serve Temporary Foreign Workers who need help in preparing their uncontested divorce applications. The clinic is offering help to TFWs, specifically those who come from countries like the Philippines where divorce is not allowed, who need to complete their application for an uncontested divorce order with the BC Supreme Court.
