     Title: Funding received for Family Law Workshops

Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick (PLEIS-NB) is pleased to announce that the Law Foundation of Ontario’s Access to Justice Fund has approved funding for a two-year project entitled Navigating the Family Justice System. 

This project involves piloting and evaluating monthly bilingual workshops in every judicial district to educate the growing number of individuals handling their own family law matters.  It will explain rules of court and proper legal procedures associated with the most common family law matters such as uncontested divorces, support variation and applications for custody/access.

PLEIS-NB will consult and collaborate with the legal community, courts, law schools and community-based stakeholders to identify a range of cost efficient models for the delivery of these bilingual workshops, with a view to addressing barriers to accessing the family justice system.   

The project is in the very early stages so stay tuned for information about workshops in your area.
