About This Site
This website is created, maintained, and administered by the Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick (PLEIS-NB). PLEIS-NB is a registered charity. Our mandate is to develop bilingual educational products and services about the law for the general public in order to promote access to the legal system. Be sure to visit our home website at www.legal-info-legale.nb.ca.
PLEIS-NB receives core funding and in-kind support from the Department of Justice Canada, the New Brunswick Law Foundation and the New Brunswick Office of the Attorney General. Each year we also apply for project funding from a variety of sources including federal and provincial government funds, foundations and others to help support special initiatives.
The Family Law NB website was developed in collaboration with an advisory committee of family law experts and front line stakeholders. PLEIS-NB conducted interviews, focus groups and surveys with court staff, members of the judiciary, family law lawyers, legal aid lawyers, pro bono clinic staff, and front line organizations whose clients are dealing with family law issues. We particularly wish to thank Court Services Division of the New Brunswick Department of Justice and Consumer Affairs for their support. This website was developed with project funding from Justice Canada.
Please note that our publications and website contain general information about the law. This is not a complete statement of the law on particular topics. We try to update our publications often, but laws change frequently so it is important for you to check to make sure the information is up to date. The information in our publications is not a substitute for legal advice. To receive legal advice about your specific situation, you need to speak to a lawyer.
