It includes various areas such as divorce, child custody and access, child support, spousal support (alimony), property division, adoption, and common-law relationships.

Can I represent myself in family court, or do I need a lawyer?
In Manitoba, individuals have the right to represent themselves in family court, known as self-representation or appearing ‘pro se.’ While it is legally possible to represent yourself, it is essential to understand that family law can be complex, and having a qualified lawyer can significantly improve your chances of achieving favorable outcomes.
Family court cases often involve emotional and intricate legal issues, such as child custody, support, and property division. A family lawyer can provide valuable legal expertise, guide you through the court process, help you understand your rights, and present your case effectively. If you choose to represent yourself, it’s crucial to thoroughly research the relevant laws, court procedures, and consider seeking legal advice for critical matters to ensure you are well-prepared for your court appearance.
