PLEA publishes several publications that deal with separation and divorce. All of PLEA’s resources are available at no charge.
PLEA’s ParentEdge provides parents who are separating or divorcing with access to child-centred information to help them deal with a variety of family law issues. The resource aims to reinforce the fact that parental responsibilities continue despite changes to the family unit. A colourful, child-friendly poster provides opportunities for parents to hear their child’s point of view and suggestions they might have for honouring the ideas expressed. It also provides opportunities for parents to offer reassurance that, no matter what, they will always be there to nurture, protect and provide for their children.
PLEA’s Family Law Saskatchewan site is designed to help individuals in Saskatchewan who are facing separation and divorce without a lawyer. Individuals who have a lawyer may also find the information helpful. If the matter must go to court, the free Form Wizard will determine the required court forms and produce ready-to-file court forms using a plain
language question and answer format. Email support is available to assist with form completion but not legal advice. Individuals needing legal advice should consult a lawyer.
