A Family Justice Counsellor provides assistance with parenting issues related to separation or divorce – for example, sorting out issues regarding parenting time and parenting responsibilities, as well as child and spousal support. Counsellors are trained to provide legal information, emotional support and short-term counselling, referrals to community services, post-separation mediation, etc. They do not provide legal advice. All services are confidential and free of charge to parents and other family members.
