If you find yourself needing answers to some questions about aspects of family law, wanting to start a court action, ready to negotiate a separation agreement or you have been served with court documents, you will need to access resources to help you sort out the next steps.
It can be difficult to find legal assistance. If you need preliminary help, start with the Family Law Information Clinic (FLIC) located at 469 Montreal Street, Kingston. The Clinic is staffed by local family lawyers and clients are served on a first-come-first-served basis. There is no fee for this service provided you economically qualify.
FLIC hours are:
Mondays and Tuesdays 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Thursdays noon - 4:00 pm
Fridays 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
You can access a 30 minute free consultation for any legal matter either over-the-phone or in-person by contacting the Law Society of Upper Canada, Lawyer Referral Service at 1-800-268-8326 or online at www.lsuc.on.ca
