Resources for Couples Living on Reserve
April 27, 2018

Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick (PLEIS-NB) is pleased to announce some free new resources, namely,

Under the federal Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act victims of family violence living on reserve can apply in “Family Court” for an Emergency Protection Order that gives the victim temporary and exclusive use of the home while they explore their options for dealing with family violence.  Check out the online version of this guide where you will find a fillable affidavit and sample cover letter to go with an application.

The other booklet was updated with the assistance of Gignoo Transition House staff.  It discusses unhealthy relationships and how to recognize them. It also reviews family law issues that may arise and relevant remedies for couples living on Reserve.  It includes resources available in New Brunswick to find legal information or advice, shelters, and other services.

These resources can be viewed online (www.legtal-info-legale.nb.ca ) or (www.familylawnb.ca ) you can request a copy  by email pleisnb@web.ca or fax 506-462-5193.

PLEIS-NB is a non-profit, charitable organization that educates the public about the law. It is funded by the Department of Justice Canada, the New Brunswick Law Foundation and the New Brunswick Office of the Attorney General.
