B.C. offers increased protection for those at risk of family violence

This model strengthens the ability of police to enforce protection orders and of Crown counsel to prosecute breach charges.

Government is acting to ensure greater safety and protection of those experiencing or are at risk of family violence, by using professional process servers for delivery of protection orders at no cost to applicants, in all regions of the province.

This change means more than 1,000 applicants will no longer need to arrange for a friend or family member to serve a protection order or hire a professional process server when a respondent is not present in court to receive the order.
