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.
