Now open for business, the Vancouver Justice Access Centre provides legal help for people with family law issues such as separation, divorce, child support and custody. In addition to family law services, the Centre also provides legal services for civil law issues such as debt, employment, benefits and housing. Within the Centre, there is a Self-Help Information Service, where people who are representing themselves in Supreme Court matters can get assistance. For more information about these and other legal services in your community, check out Clicklaw’s HelpMap.
Welcome to the Nidus Personal Planning Resource Centre and Registry, a new contributor to the Clicklaw website. Their resources provide great information on representation agreements – legal documents that allow you to name someone to act on your behalf for health and personal care matters. Nidus resources in the Solve Problems section of Clicklaw include factsheets, checklists and worksheets that can help you to create and register a representation agreement that best suits your needs and beliefs.
Nidus also has information specific to people with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, including a report in Clicklaw’s Reform and Research section called “Experiences of Adults Living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and Their Personal Supporters in Making and Using a Representation Agreement”
