Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.

Family Law Information

Family Law Service Centres (FLSCs) offer eligible clients a range of legal resources and support for family matters, including:

  • help with documents
  • referrals to advice counsel
  • full representation in family law cases by a staff lawyer
  •  referral to a private lawyer who does legal aid work, if eligible
  • mediation and settlement conferences
  • referrals to other social service agencies

Certificate applications for serious domestic violence, child protection, or complex family law cases are also accepted.

The centres are staffed by a lawyer manager, staff lawyers, and legal workers who are supervised by lawyers. Each of the FLSCs serve clients going to the family courts located in their area, so it is important that you contact the FLSC in the region where your court case is located.

FLSCs are located in Toronto, North York, Newmarket, Brampton, Chatham and Sarnia. Find the FLSC near you.
