Getting legal help

Family Law Information Program (FLIP)

The Family Law Information Program is a free online resource for families, former spouses and partners about to enter the family justice system. The goal of the program is to help you make more informed decisions about legal and emotional issues that often arise at the end of a relationship.

If you have permission from a judge to use the Family Law Information Program instead of attending a scheduled mandatory information program session, you must use the certificate of completion version. This version will allow you to print or save a certificate when you have finished the program.

  • child custody

  • property settlements

Easy to understand

The program uses both audio and text in simple, clear language to guide Ontarians through:

  • legal definitions
  • information on legal representation
  • dispute resolution
  • the family court process and more.
