NO WRONG DOOR AT JARED"S PLACE

“Many women who enter the front door of the family court for the first time have little or no information about the law or the process.  For most women, their access to the support services in their community comes only through happenstance and not in a coordinated way.  Many women do not even know what a Family Law Information Centre (FLIC) office is, or what duty counsel can do.”
