Judges and SRLs: Opening A DialogueNSRLP
This week’s episode, a conversation with Ontario Superior Court Justice David Price, is a little different from our usual fare. The aim of this episode is to present some important and practical information about how to successfully navigate the legal process as a self-represented litigant in family court. Justice Price addresses how and why to craft a just and durable settlement in a family dispute, and provides a host of practical tips for family SRLs. We’d also like to hear from you – what questions do you have for Justice Price? We’ll pick some for him to answer in a follow up to this conversation in the new year.
