Proper legal help was needed
Media coverage of the unfortunate story Darrin White has included an abundance of interference and rhetoric, and too few facts. on behalf of the Canadian Bar Association, B.C. Branch, I offer the following:
FACT: Darrin White was involved in a family law action and was ordered to pay child support.
FACT; He and his non-lawyer advocate, Todd Eckert, failed to provide proof of Mr. White's disability or lack of income.
FACT; Based solely on the evidence provided, which is all that a judge can consider under the law, child support was set according to federal guidelines.
FACT: Mr. White did not get the outcome he hoped for, nor the one he would have likely received with proper representation.
FACT; Lawyers are trained to prevent legal problems, and to protect your rights. A lawyer is trained in, among other matters, legal proceedings, the laws of evidence, preparation of legal argument, and court representation.
Standard procedures should have been followed to provide evidence to support Mr. White's argument regarding how much child support he could afford to pay.
FACT: Government under funding means that thousands of British Columbians can't qualify for Legal Aid. Many people are struggling in our courts without a lawyer. Talk to your MLA and demand the facts. In this this years alone, $81 million was collected from a special tax on legal fees to fund Legal Aid, but the government spent millions of it on other priorities. Ask them why.
FACT: Everyone has a right to proper legal advise. The Canadian Bar Association, B.C. branch operates a Law Referral Service, funded by the law foundation of B.C., which offers a $10 half-hour consultation with a properly trained lawyer,to anyone with a properly trained lawyer, to anyone with anyone with any legal problem.
