WHAT'S UP?


It’s Access to Justice Week in Saskatchewan!

We invite everyone to check out the events scheduled for the week at law.usask.ca/SKA2J17.php. These include public lectures, Town Hall meetings, A Free Legal Resource Fair, a family law walk-in clinic, and a conference focusing on libraries and the delivery of legal information.

We particularly encourage members of the public to participate in Town Hall meetings in Saskatoon and Regina for discussions on the possibility of the future provision of some legal services by non-lawyers.

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.
