Clinical Panel

The Children's Lawyer selects qualified mental health professionals from across Ontario to provide independent investigations and reports to the Court, and clinical assistance to lawyers, in custody and access matters before the Court.  The governing legislation for these matters is the Child, Youth and Family Services Act, the Divorce Act, the Children's Law Reform Act, and the Courts of Justice Act. 

Compensation is on a fee-for-service basis.
