WHAT'S UP?


AGREEMENT MAKER
now available on Family Law Saskatchewan

Many people with legal issues arising from family breakdown would like to resolve them by agreement but are not sure where to start. PLEA's Agreement Maker guides people through the process with simple interview style questions. People can deal with a wide range of issues using the Agreement Maker - from custody, child support, spousal support and family property to consent orders.

  • Saskatchewan-specific plain-language legal information is integrated into each step.
  • Users select issues they want to deal with from a wide-range of options.
  • Provides the flexibility for users to write their own clauses but also provides extensive options for users to choose from if they need guidance.
  • Alerts users to issues they may want to deal with but also allows users to choose not to cover these issues in their agreement.
  • Creates an easily editable word document for users to further refine if they choose.
  • Includes an easy-to-understand explanation about next steps including signing and witnessing requirements, when legal advice is required and options for using the agreement to ask for consent orders.

Have a question about legal information?

The objective of the Saskatchewan Access to Legal Information Project (the SALI Project) is to increase access to legal information for Saskatchewan residents. Access to legal information is one of the critical components of access to justice and the SALI project's goal is make the public more aware of public libraries as an 'access to justice entry point' (i.e. an accessible place to find legal information).

Ask a library staff member or visit law.usask.ca/createjustice/sali for a list of resources.

Project partners:

  • Public Legal Education Association of Saskatchewan (PLEA)
  • Law Society of Saskatchewan Library
  • Urban Public Library (Saskatoon Public Library)
  • Rural Public Library (Wheatland Regional Library, Southeast Regional Library, and Parkland Regional Library)

Introducing Family Law Saskatchewan!

The information and assistance on this website is specifically designed to help individuals in Saskatchewan who are facing separation and divorce without a lawyer, although it may also be very useful for people who have or plan to have a lawyer.

Family Law Saskatchewan has information about a wide range of topics from grounds for divorce, to child support guidelines, spousal support, parenting plans, separation agreements and how family property is defined and divided. This information can help people understand their rights and obligations, how courts make decisions in family law cases and what steps they need to take.

If you need to apply to court for divorce, custody, access, child support, spousal support or to have family property divided, or you have you been served with court documents in a family law case, the free Form Wizard can help you. You will answer plain-language interview style questions and this information will be used to create the court forms you need. Throughout the process you will be provided with explanations of questions and links back to relevant parts of the information on the site. We also offer email support if you need help using the Form Wizard.
