Event description
Ideal for service providers helping people that have experienced domestic violence and want to improve circumstances, outcomes, even safety.

About this Event

With the high cost of legal fees and lack of awareness about free reliable resources more and more people feel forced to self-represent through the family court system, often with unfavorable results. Many community partners feel frustrated and unsure of how to intervene. This forum is an opportunity to explore creative and out of the box solutions, increase knowledge and work together on behalf of the people we support, including:

- Completing frequently used forms

- How our clients can present their case more effectively

- Emergency and urgent motions

- Helpful, reliable resources

- Unbundling legal services and legal coaching

- Trouble shooting criminal challenges regarding domestic violence

Practiced Family Court Support Workers Billi Balment and Kristal Ashford from the YWCA Peterborough Haliburton will also be presenting at this informative event. You definitley want to hear what they have to say.

LUNCH: Sandwiches (vegetarian gluten-free option), coffee, tea, water, raw veggies and desert provided

PARKING: On the street or the parking lots of Trinity United Church right across from Coronation Hall as well as the former TD Bank at the corner of King St. West and Sturgeon Road North.

Best personal regards,

Maureen
