WHAT IF I CANNOT AFFORD A LAWYER?

You must be financially eligible to receive most of these services. Call Legal Aid Ontario to find out if you are eligible. Legal Aid Ontario also offers many services over the phone. You do not have to meet any financial requirements for general information and referrals. The Family Court Support Worker can help guide you through this process.
