The Family LawLINE is a telephone advice line, recently introduced by Legal Services Society (LSS). If you are a person with a low income experiencing a family law problem, you may be eligible for free legal advice through the Family LawLINE from a family lawyer.
Family LawLINE lawyers give brief “next step” advice about custody, access, guardianship, child/spousal support, property division, family agreements, adoption, and court procedures. For more information about the advice line, and to find out if you are eligible please visit the LSS family law website.
Two new self-help guides were added to the LSS Family Law website in October.
- How to get a final family order in Provincial Court if you agree shows you how to get a final order for custody, access, guardianship and/or child or spousal support if both parties agree.
- How to deal with a committal hearing (because you’ve fallen behind in your support payments) can help if you’ve been served with a summons for a committal hearing because you haven’t paid maintenance (child and/or spousal support) that you owe.
