Type of service
Family Court Services
Legal Aid Saskatchewan provides legal services for family law matters to people who qualify for legal aid. Issues can include maintenance, custody, access, and varying and vacating such orders, and divorce. Applicants can qualify for legal services when they are on social assistance or Indian Band assistance, or when the cost of a private lawyer would reduce their financial resources to social-assistance levels.
