Abuse and family violence – How CALC can help

If you are experiencing family violence, in special circumstances we can offer a legal aid certificate to get a free emergency 2-hour consultation from a lawyer.

See our Family law problems page for information and help in family law. We have created special guides to help you navigate family law problems in Hastings, Prince Edward, Lennox & Addington Counties and Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.
