The Ministry of the Attorney General unveiled the Family Court Support Worker program in November 2011 to support victims of domestic violence who are involved in the family court process.

Lanark County Interval House was appointed to provide the role of Family Court Support Worker to Lanark County.

Family Court Support Workers provide direct support to victims of domestic violence who are involved in the family court process.

 A Family Court Support Worker will:

  • provide information about the family court process
  • help victims prepare for family court proceedings
  • refer victims to other specialized services and supports in the community
  • help with safety planning, such as getting to and from court safely
  • accompany the victim to court proceedings, where appropriate.
