What is the Family Law Information Centre (FLIC)?

splittingFLIC is a legal resource for separating or divorcing couples and families in transition.

FLIC is an office of the Court Services branch of the Yukon Department of Justice that provides information on family law issues and court procedures. 

Services provided by FLIC are free to the public. Anyone who needs information about Yukon family law matters can use the centre, but it is important to understand and remember that FLIC staff members do not take the place of a lawyer.

FLIC is staffed by neutral people who provide legal information and educational materials as a public service. Your communications with the staff are confidential, but staff members are available to help both parties.

How can we help?

FLIC staff can:

  • give you information on family law;
  • provide various publications on family law matters, including self-help guides;
  • offer some help with completing court forms;
  • provide computers for public use to research family law matters and to access and prepare court forms;
  • notarize your court forms; and
  • provide referrals to other organizations and agencies.

FLIC staff cannot:

  • provide legal advice (for legal advice, you must consult a lawyer);
  • tell you what to say in your court forms or what to say in court;
  • complete any part of the court forms for you;
  • recommend a litigation strategy;
  • represent you or appear in court on your behalf;
  • file your forms with the court; and
  • serve forms on the other party.

An Important Caution

The staff members at FLIC do not take the place of a lawyer. There is no attorney-client relationship between you and the staff. You are strongly encouraged to seek the services of a lawyer for legal advice and strategy.
