Provincial Court Family Duty Counsel

Provincial Court Family Duty Counsel

Duty counsel are lawyers who can help people with low incomes with their family law problems, including child protection issues (if the Ministry of Children and Family Development becomes involved with your family). If you are financially eligible, duty counsel can give you advice and speak on your behalf in court on simple matters. However, they will not take on your whole case and will not represent you at a trial. They can also attend family case conferences at some courts.
