  • The Ministry of Attorney General Family Justice Services Division (FJSD) serves families experiencing separation or divorce by providing information and mediation services to help resolve family law disputes.
  • Free services are available throughout the province, virtually or in person at community-based Justice Access Centres and Family Justice Centres.
  • Specially trained staff are available to provide information, needs assessment, referrals, dispute resolution options and limited legal advice.
  • In locations where the early resolution process applies, FJSD also provides services to people looking to resolve a family law matter.
  • Before filing (or replying to) an application about a family law matter in Provincial Court, parties are required to complete a needs assessment with a family justice counsellor (at FJSD), a parenting education course and one consensual dispute resolution session, if appropriate.
  • A family law matter, as defined by the Provincial Court Family Rules, includes:
    • parenting arrangements, including parental responsibilities and parenting time;
    • child support;
    • contact with a child;
    • guardianship of a child;
    • spousal support; and
    • ownership and possession of companion animals.
