Marsha Guthrie, Manager,
Implementation and Partnerships with the Alberta Legal Information Society and Julie Rainey of Alberta Law Libraries for sending the following my way:
free website for Albertans dealing with family law issues: LegalAve
is a free
website that brings together existing public legal information under a single
virtual "roof" to help people in Alberta dealing with family law
issues such as separation and divorce, child support, custody,
guardianship, parenting time, partner/spousal support, property division,
family violence, and more. The plain language website describes the law
in Alberta, the process to follow (such as court forms and court hearings), and
common questions about family law issues. LegalAve also has general information
about navigating the legal system, including out-of-court resolution options,
working with a lawyer, community legal resources, and legal aid. The "Guided
Pathway" feature allows users to answer a series of questions about their
legal issue and be directed only to the information that applies to them.
legalave.ca as a starting point for family
law resources in Alberta.
website was created by the Alberta Legal Information Society (ALIS), and links
to resources from organizations such as the Centre for Public Legal Education
Alberta, Alberta Courts, Legal Aid Alberta, Native Counselling Services of
Alberta, Calgary Legal Guidance, Student Legal Services of Edmonton, and many
more. All resources are reviewed and approved for accuracy and currency by the
ALIS staff lawyer.
