LegalAve - Alberta family law information

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:

New free website for Albertans dealing with family law issues: LegalAve

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.

Visit as a starting point for family law resources in Alberta.

The 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.
