PLEA has launched a new website, Family Law Saskatchewan, to provide information on a wide range of family law topics, such as grounds for divorce, child and spousal support and property division. The site is the first of its kind in Canada and PLEA states that there are three important features of the site:
- First there is comprehensive plain-language information on topics from child support, to dividing property, parenting plans and more.
- Second there is an interview-style questionnaire where we gather information about what the person needs to do (for example ask the court for a divorce or respond to papers served on them). The free Form Wizard then produces a unique Step-by-Step for that individual’s situation which breaks it down into manageable actions that are checked off one-by-one as they are completed.
- Third the Step-by-Step tells them what forms they need to fill out and sends them to a plain language questionnaire for each form. Their answers are used by the Form Wizard to create a completed court form that is ready to be served and filed. The Step-by-Step explains how to file and serve these documents.
- Throughout people are provided with help text and links back to relevant information.
