Ontario A.G. Launches New "Legal Forms Assistant"

Ontario's Attorney General has launched a new online "Legal Forms Assistant" to assist unrepresented litigants to complete family law and small claims court forms.

According to a news release from the A.G.'s office:

"We're making our family courts more affordable and less complicated. This new tool simplifies the process and we are also making progress in providing the information upfront to help families reach informed decisions."
- Chris Bentley, Attorney General

The online programme uses an interactive question-and-answer format to walk individuals through the information required to complete these forms.

It does appear to represent a significant improvement on the stand-alone, locked-format Family Law Rules Forms that are also available online.

Cudos to the A.G. on its continuing efforts to upgrade and modernize Ontario Courts' interface with public.

We can only hope that e-filing of court forms in the Province will be just around the corner...
