Financially eligible families may access full representation services from a lawyer appointed by Legal Aid Manitoba (LAM) for most family law matters, including:

  • Separation
  • Divorce
  • Protection/prevention orders
  • Spousal support
  • Domestic abuse
  • Child custody/support matters

An Alternative to Court

LAM also offers Collaborative Law, a service that helps couples find common ground in the best interests of their child instead of taking an adversarial approach and building a case against each other.

The goal is to resolve issues by negotiating a settlement with couples and their lawyers, without going to court.

If applicable, ask your legal aid lawyer for details.
