Family Justice

A large percentage of Alberta’s population is affected by family law issues at  some point in their lives, with respect to child support, spousal support, parenting arrangements, child protection, guardianship, and contact with a child.

Family law cases account for just over 35% of all civil court cases in the seven reporting provinces and territories (including Alberta).
