Below is one of the emails from a Surrey, BC law firm explaining how much more this dad must pay for a chance to get joint custody of his own children in New Westminster, BC supreme family court. This family law lawyer was also married to a Port Coquitlam, BC provincial family law judge. 80 hours X $300 $ per hour plus expenses = That equates to $25,000 beyond the 10s of thousands already spent in this family law case. The dad was a carpenter that made less than 50K a year & did not drink, smoke or have any criminal record. But the courts knew his assets, as that is part of the disclosure process. BC family law industry must be exposed.
