The Public Legal Education Association of Saskatchewan is officially launching Family Law Saskatchewan on Wednesday. Described as a first of a kind in Canada, the new website will provide help for people dealing with the legal consequences of family breakdown without a lawyer as well as anyone needing information about family law in general. It will be an essential resource for families who cannot afford a lawyer and do not qualify for Legal Aid.
The website will include comprehensive plain language information on a wide range of topics from grounds for divorce to child support guidelines, spousal support, parenting plans, separation agreements and how family property is defined and divided. As well individuals who need to make or respond to a family law court application can use the free Form Wizard. The website is www.familylaw.plea.org.
