Family Division

“I would like to extend a warm thank you to DLS for your support during the procedures to obtain my custody agreement during my separation. As a graduate mother of a young child, I honestly do not know how I could have done this without DLS.”

Students in our family division are able to provide information and advice to clients on a variety of family law issues, including custody, access, support and restraining orders. We provide a range of services including summary advice, negotiation and representation at the Ontario Court of Justice. For cases that are or will be filed with court, we are only able to assist at matters before the North Toronto Family Court (47 Sheppard Avenue East).

We are not able to assist with divorce cases, division of property and child protection (Children’s Aid matters).

To learn more about the steps in a  family court case, you may find CLEO’s family law flowcharts helpful.
