Understanding Family Law in Winnipeg

Family law in Canada is an area of shared jurisdiction between federal, provincial and territorial governments. While the federal government is responsible for divorce and related matters, such as parenting and support, the provinces have jurisdiction relating to matters of separation, where no divorce is sought, and to unmarried couples, covering many of the same issues and property matters.


The provinces also are responsible for the administration of justice, such that each province has its own courts and respective rules and procedures. Manitoba’s family court system has undergone massive change in the last couple of years.


Not sure which matter or approach is right for you? Fishman Beley Family Law Associates have experience with family law litigation, settlements, meditation and arbitration.
