Wednesday 9:00am – 1:00pm
Family duty counsel can help you with Provincial Court family law matters, including child protection issues (if the Ministry of Children and Family Development becomes involved with your family). Duty counsel can give you advice and speak on your behalf in court on simple matters. However, they will not take on your whole case and will not represent you at a trial. People are helped on a first come, first served basis. Note that the lawyers must first help people who have matters in court that day, but can assist others once they are not needed in court.
