On July 6, 2020, Legal Aid Alberta implemented appropriate hours on family certificates. Every family matter is reviewed by an assessment team lawyer, and appropriate hours are determined based on the presented legal issues and information provided by the client.
We recognize that new information, unexpected complications or delays can arise. If you believe that additional hours will be required, please complete an Authorization Request through Lawyer Portal. When requesting additional hours, please provide Legal Aid with detailed information on the work that was completed in the hours provided and the work that still needs to be completed as well as any other pertinent details.
