Divorce and family law in British Columbia are governed by the Divorce Act and the Family Law Act.
The Family Law Act was specifically crafted in order to do away with the difference in treatment between common law and married couples. The Family Law Act uses the term Spouse. A spouse is a married person or a person who has been living with another in a marriage-like relationship for two years, or has had a child together.
