Flexible solutions for those with limited financial means
Connect Community is an alternative way for clients of Connect Family Law to access family law legal services. Qualifying clients, who have limited financial means, can choose to work with one of our junior lawyers and paralegals. All work will be done on a fixed/flat fee basis and will be overseen by a senior lawyer of the firm.
Why did we start Connect Community?
One of our core values at Connect Family Law is to honour and elevate people and Connect Community is a way to do just that.
We see this as an opportunity to provide needed legal services to our community, while at the same time investing in the growth and education of our junior lawyers.
We believe in connecting our clients to a better future by doing family law differently. It is only through the stewardship of our senior lawyers will our junior lawyers learn that doing family law differently is possible and it is only by reaching out to our community will we change the way families move through separation and divorce. By improving and changing both sides of the equation (lawyers and clients), we can create better outcomes for families.
Who is the right fit?
The client that best suits Connect Community is:
– A person who has an income of $40,000 per year or less or a household income of $70,000 per year or less.
– A person with a relatively straightforward financial situation and/or uncomplicated parenting issues.
