Family Law – Porte 33

Are you going through a family separation and do you have one or more dependent children? Our Family Law – Porte 33 program offers families in this situation access to legal and psychosocial resources, focusing on the child’s best interests.

The program consists of one-on-one meetings, which are free and confidential, in videoconference format with a volunteer lawyer or notary as well as a psychosocial counsellor from the organization Première Ressource. They provide parents with valuable psycholegal information in an instance of separation.

« Le partenariat médico-juridique de l’Hôpital de Montréal pour enfants m’a aidée dans toutes les démarches administratives, tant pour l’assurance maladie de mes enfants que l’assermentation de mes documents. Une période vraiment remplie de stress et de difficultés pendant laquelle, Me Aude Exertier m’a assistée, toujours à l’écoute et offrant de précieux conseils, dans l’intérêt de mon enfant hospitalisé. Elle m’a également soutenue concernant mon statut d’immigration au Canada et dans mes démarches en lien avec une erreur sur l’état civil de ma fille. Et tout est rentré dans l’ordre. Merci encore à Me Aude Exertier.»

«I would like to express my most sincere thanks to the help provided by the lawyer, Me Aude Exertier who since November 2021 has supported me in all the process of regularization of status in Canada. Me Aude Exertier has taken care of every detail guiding me in the steps to follow with excellent will, she calls me by phone and answers my emails even the days she does not work in the hospital. She helped me find another lawyer to continue with my legal process, Me Myriam Harbec, both have worked together brilliantly, very professional, humane. They have done a magnificent follow up of my case, even giving me advice. I am eternally grateful to them and I congratulate them for their professionalism, always attentive with a smile and sympathy to communicate. Thank you very much Me Aude Exertier and Me Myriam Harbec.»
