Change an order or set aside an agreement made in BC

Life changes, and at some point you might need to change an order or agreement to fit your new situation.

We have guides to help you to:

  • change a court order, or
  • get an order to set aside all or part of a parenting agreement (if you and the other person can't agree).
If you want to set aside (change) all or part of an agreement and you and the other person agree on what you want it to say, you can make a new agreement instead of getting orders.
