Effective November 16, 2020, the Guelph Family Court will now be hearing matters using ZOOM Conferencing Software. Scheduled proceedings will be heard using this software and unless otherwise directed by the court all appearances shall be AUDIO or VIDEO, not in person. This is in continuing efforts to curb the spread of COVID 19, while ensuring the safety of court users, justice system participants, and members of the public by limiting access to courthouses, when possible.

Finding a Lawyer or Paralegal
The law library or the Wellington Law Association is not able to recommend a lawyer to you. However you can obtain help in finding a lawyer from the Law Society of Upper Canada.
The Law Society has several services to help you find a legal professional to assist you with your legal problems.
This includes the Lawyer Referral Service. The Lawyer Referral Service will give you the name of a lawyer within or near your community, who will provide a free consultation of up to 30 minutes to help you determine your rights and options.

Note: You must contact the Lawyer Referral Service via E-mail.
