Court Records

Court records include divorce records, probated estate records, wills, civil case files and bankruptcy records. There are reference guides available to assist you in locating divorce orders, wills and probates, but the civil case files and bankruptcy records require more in-depth searching by staff at BC Archives.

The following forms are to be used only for requests for records transferred to the BC Archives from Court Registries. Information for these forms can be obtained directly from the court registry responsible for granting the record.
