Family Law Resources for MEN (Greater Toronto Area)

Updated – August 15, 2016


Family Law Information Centres (FLIC) services are available in family courts across Ontario. At the FLIC you can find information about separation and divorce and related family law issues, family justice services, alternative forms of dispute resolution, local community resources and court processes. They can give you information about family mediation and other ways to solve your issues without going to court at no cost!

The Family Law Information Program is a free online resource for families, former spouses and partners about to enter the family justice system. The goal of the program is to help you make more informed decisions about legal and emotional issues that often arise at the end of a relationship.

If you have permission from a judge to use the Family Law Information Program instead of attending a scheduled Mandatory Information Program session, you must use the certificate of completion version. This version will allow you to print or save a certificate when you have finished the program.

Training Course

Family Law Service Centres serve eligible clients going to family courts located in their area by offering:
– help with documents
– referrals to staff advice lawyers
– full representation in family law cases by a staff lawyer
– if eligible, referral to a private lawyer who does legal aid work
– mediation and settlement conferences
– referrals to other social service agencies
They may recommend that you apply for full representation by a lawyer for serious cases that are either complex or involve domestic violence or child protection.

Legal Aid gives people with low incomes to access to a range of legal services tailored to meet their legal needs.

Am I eligible for Legal Aid?

JusticeNet is a not-for-profit service helping people in need of legal expertise, whose income is too high to access legal aid and too low to afford standard legal fees. JusticeNet is currently available to anyone living in Ontario. It has client brochures available in English, French, Arabic, Chinese, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Hebrew, Farsi, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
