How is your family law practice faring in these new times? Every family law practitioner is adjusting to the “new normal” and our presenters can help you find a path forward.

The 14th Family Law Summit helps you cope. We offer an opportunity to hear about a diverse range of topics that have been curated to meet the needs of family law practitioners today.
• Hear about reforms to the parenting provisions of the Divorce Act
• Learn practical approaches to better communicate with your clients in a virtual environment
• Be aware of the advantages and drawbacks of technology within family law practice

Please see the following links and resources regarding Family Law Services that are currently available in light of the COVID-19 pandemic:
The Law Society of Ontario with support from the Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Court of Justice has launched an emergency family law referral phone line to assist people who are self-represented & trying to determine whether or not their family court matter meets the criteria to be heard by the Court on an “urgent” basis.
The emergency service will connect SRLs with family lawyers, working on a pro bono basis, who will provide 30 minutes of legal advice specific to determining whether or not their family court matter is urgent and referrals to other available legal services.
To access this service, which will be staffed during business hours, SRLs may contact the Law Society by phone at 1-800-268-7568 or 416-947-3310.
Callers get the option for French or English when they call the number. They can select French if they need services in French and may request a referral to a French-speaking Lawyer.
