Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) provides legal assistance to people who cannot afford private counsel. In the family law context, LAO issues “Certificates” to those who qualify. Eligibility is assessed according to your particular legal issue and financial situation.
Once acquired, a Certificate acts as a coupon for free legal services for a certain number of hours. It is then your prerogative to retain a suitable lawyer who accepts Legal Aid Certificates.
At Nussbaum Law, we understand that private legal fees are far too burdensome for many litigants. As such, we happily accept Legal Aid Certificates, and we pride ourselves in providing top legal representation to those in need.
Please contact us to set up an initial consultation. We may be able to accommodate your financial situation.
You may also still qualify for other free legal assistance even if you are not eligible for a Certificate.
