Porte 33 – Free legal clinics on family law matters

Porte 33

Referring to Article 33 of Quebec’s Civil Code, the project aims to offer legal and psychosocial resources, focusing on the child’s best interests, to families experiencing a separation. The project’s objective is twofold: to improve access to family justice and to mitigate the impact of separation in the child’s life.

See our ELECTRONIC BOOK (in French only – an English version will soon be available), where you will undoubtedly find answers to your questions.

Financially supported by the Notarial Studies Fund of the Chambre des notaires du Québec.

OUR CLINICS

In this time of pandemic, Porte 33 is transforming itself into a videoconference meeting service to answer your questions about family separation.

These 45-minute remote meetings will allow you to speak simultaneously to a volunteer lawyer or notary and a Family Centre worker.

Find answers to your questions about :

  • Family law and the legal process*;
  • Resources available to you and your child ;
  • Ways to accompany your child through the separation.

Videoconference calls will take place on the Wednesday afternoon of each week.

In the meantime, we recommend that you consult Porte 33’s e-book “S’orienter dans la séparation familiale” by clicking here.

*Please note that the lawyer or notary will not give any legal advice.

Please note that our meetings will start again in early fall 2020.
