The Family Law Limited Scope Services Project aims to improve access to family justice for middle and lower income Ontarians by increasing the use of limited scope services, also known as "unbundled" legal services, in family law. These services provide an affordable option between full representation and no representation at all, where the lawyer only takes on specific responsibilities agreed to between the lawyer and the client.
The Family Law Limited Scope Services Project website is designed to:
- Help people to decide if limited scope services may be an option for them
- Provide practical tools, such as checklists, flow charts, and a guide on how to hire a lawyer who will provide limited scope services
- Provide resources and referral information for family legal services in Ontario
- Provide lawyers with information and precedent materials, including retainer agreements, file opening checklists and other precedents List upcoming training opportunities for lawyers.
