The Public Legal Education Association of Saskatchewan (PLEA) is a non-profit, non-government organization that exists to educate, inform and empower through law-related education. The Law Foundation of Saskatchewan has been PLEA’s most important supporter since our organization began operations in June of 1980. The Foundation has provided the majority of PLEA’s operating funds on an annual basis for over forty years.
Family Law Saskatchewan has been created by PLEA with funding from the Law Foundation of Ontario to provide free-of-charge assistance to people in Saskatchewan who are dealing with separation and divorce. Additional features were added with the generous support of the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan. The Agreement Maker option was developed with funding from the Department of Justice Canada, Canadian Family Justice Fund.
This site would not have been possible without the generous assistance of our Advisory Committee that included representatives from the Ministry of Justice Saskatchewan, the Court of King’s Bench, Family Law Division, the Provincial Court of Saskatchewan, Legal Aid, CLASSIC, Pro-Bono Law Saskatchewan, practicing family law lawyers and others. We would especially like to thank the Honourable Mr. Justice Turcotte and Kim Newsham, Crown Counsel with the Ministry of Justice, for their valuable assistance throughout the process.
The information and assistance on this site is specifically designed to help individuals in Saskatchewan who are facing separation and divorce without a lawyer, although it may also be very useful for people who have or plan to have a lawyer. However, it is important to remember that the information and help this site provides is not the same as going to a lawyer. Only a lawyer can advise you about what you should do.
Family Law Saskatchewan has information about a wide range of topics from grounds for divorce, to child support guidelines, spousal support, parenting plans, separation agreements, how family property is defined and divided, making agreements, getting a court order and how family violence can impact family law issues. This information can help people understand their rights and obligations, how courts make decisions in family law cases and what steps they need to take.
If you need to apply to court for divorce, a parenting order, child support, spousal support or to have family property divided, or you have been served with court documents in a family law case, the free Form Wizard can help you. You will answer plain-language interview style questions and this information will be used to create the court forms you need. Throughout the process you will be provided with explanations of questions and links back to relevant parts of the information on the site. We also offer email support if you need help using the Form Wizard.
