FAMILY COURT SERVICES
Family Court Services
The Family Court Services Unit was developed to assist judges and general magistrates with some of the Court's most difficult family cases, reducing case delays while tending to the unique needs of divorcing parents and their children. Through short-term interventions and services that focus upon solutions rather than conflicts, the Family Court Services team helps parents reach understandings, resolve issues together, and develop a support system in their communities to assist them in the future.

Support to families is provided with particular sensitivity to the needs of children. Click here to view some very special drawings, which remind us that parents get divorced, not children.[Compiled from the voices of children expressed in Family Court Services' Support Group meetings.]
