Family Law Information Video

A free online information video to help you understand the family law process

The Family Law Information video is designed to provide the type of information parents need to:

  • Understand how separation and divorce can impact their children.

Some of the topics covered are:

  • Where to start and the importance of making parenting plan arrangements;
  • Impacts of separation and divorce on children;
  • Resources for those concerned for their safety;
  • Types of parenting orders;
  • Child support guidelines, and
  • Options for negotiations and establishing agreements and court orders
