Public Survey

Your chance to participate in law reform in Saskatchewan!

The Law Reform Commission of Saskatchewan is currently considering whether Saskatchewan's laws on determining the parentage of children need to be reformed to specifically address the rising use of assisted reproduction. The Commission is undergoing public consultation seeking responses to questions posed in a consultation paper on the topic. The consultation paper and further information can be found on the Commission's website (http://lawreformcommission.sk.ca/consultations/). The deadline for commenting is May 31, 2018.

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.
