The Law Society of Ontario has set up a temporary emergency family law referral telephone line. This is because since March 16, 2020, Ontario’s family courts are only open for urgent matters because of the COVID-19 situation.
You can call this service if you have a family law issue and you:
don’t have a lawyer
don’t know if your issue is urgent or not
don’t know your next steps if your matter is urgent
If this is your situation, the referral service will help you get 30 minutes of free legal advice and information from a family law lawyer.
Luke’s Place works with abused women across Ontario by providing legal advice, support, and referrals. They offer a Virtual Legal Clinic that connects women with lawyers for free legal advice on family law issues. Call 905-728-0978 or 1-866-516-3116.
