Court Costs Survey - An Update.

Posted by Peel Law Association on 13 October 2016

As many of you may already know, in September, the Peel Law Association sent out a survey via an email campaign regarding the costs under the family law rules, specifically Rule 24.  The survey closed on September 19, 2016, and was well received by the membership.

The Peel Law Association would like to take this time to thank everyone who participated in the survey. The survey results are currently under review with the committee and we will share an update with you in the upcoming months, in respect to the results and the submission to the Family Law Rules Committee.

If you were unable to participate in the survey, or if you have further comments about the costs under the family law rules, we would like to invite you to contact the PLA by email, with any comments or concerns you have, which will be reviewed by the Family Law Rules Committee.

Thank you again for your participation and continued support.

Family Law Survey

 

The Minister of the Attorney General along with the Law Society of Upper Canada have decided to explore whether to open the delivery of family law services (not including C.A.S. matters) to paralegals, law students and law clerks.  The Honourable Justice Annemarie E. Bonkalo has been appointed to lead a review.

Her Honour has been asked to look at  the following:
1. Identify the legal services at different stages in a family law matter which, if provided by persons in addition to lawyers, could improve the family justice system by better enabling people to resolve their family law disputes.
2. Identify persons other than lawyers (e.g., paralegals, law clerks and/or law students) who may be capable of providing those family legal services with appropriate safeguards put in place (e.g., education, training).
3. Recommend procedures, mechanisms and/or safeguards (such as education, training, insurance, regulation and/or oversight) to ensure the quality of family legal services provided by alternate legal service providers.

A full review of the mandate of the Honourable Justice Annemarie E. Bonkalo can be found at http://www.attorneygeneral.jus.gov.on.ca/english/family/legal_services_consultation_paper.html
