Services of the Family Division:
A number of services are provided in the Family Division. Some are intended to give parties an opportunity to resolve family disputes outside of the court process in appropriate cases. Others give information on the effects that separation and divorce may have on individuals and their children. Others are in place to explain court procedure, and the legal process if you are not represented by a lawyer. These services are intended to reduce the conflict and tension that families experience when going through separation or divorce or dealing with family conflicts. Referrals to crisis and post-separation counselling and health care professionals are also available.
The programs and services of the court are administered and delivered by the Nova Scotia Department of Justice.
