Family Law Help Over the Phone

Last year, I wrote about some of the services offered by LawLINE, the Legal Services Society's telephone legal assistance service.  In a welcome move, the LSS recently launched Family LawLINE which provides legal advice for family law problems including, custody, access, guardianship, child support, spousal support, property division, family agreements, adoption, and court procedures.  Those who meet the LSS income eligibility requirements may be able to speak to a lawyer over the phone and get brief legal advice regarding the next steps in their family law dispute. 

Most family law issues are not covered by legal aid in British Columbia, and legal assistance in this area is prohibitively expensive for the average person, making the Family LawLINE a much-needed resource for low-income residents.


  1. This is a fantastic asset for families with legal issues. I especially like it because it allows busy parents to remain at home with their children while receiving effective legal advice. Excellent service!
