Resolution Services has provided an update on a change to the availability of Family Court Counsellor (FCC) in-court assistance services. To assist staff in concentrating on settling family law disputes before they get to the court room, FCC in-court assistance services will be stopped.
Making this change permanent allows for the optimum use of available staff resources. FCCs will continue to be the first point of contact for SRLs with family law disputes, and will continue to deliver Intake and Caseflow Conference services. The expectation is that this will allow Resolution Services to continue to support families and the court by diverting family law disputes to other resolution options and resources before a court application is filed, and by providing accurate information about court forms and process when required.
As of Jan. 4, 2021, FCC in-court assistance services are not available in Calgary and Medicine Hat, and services will end for all other locations as of Feb. 1, 2021.
They would like to thank everyone who supported the FCC in-court assistance services, and who will continue to help Albertans going through what is often a very difficult time as they restructure their families.
