Abuse and Family Violence

Like most clinics, we do not have family law specialists. You can obtain information about all of Legal Aid’s family law services by calling the numbers below. Some emergency advice and representation may be available, depending on your circumstances. Assistance is available for completing forms for the Family Court process. In limited situations, Legal Aid Ontario may provide the services of a family lawyer. If you live in or near Toronto, please call the Metro Toronto Family Law Service number 416 696 2992 for more information. Outside of Toronto, call 1-800-668-8258. Visit  Legal Aid’s website for more.

For quick answers to common questions, we also recommend the Steps to Justice website. It provides step-by-step information about abuse, family violence and other legal problems.
