Consultation Hours at our Bayfield St, Barrie (Head Office):

9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday (By Appointment Only)


Location of Family Law Pathways Centre:

Barrie, ON, L4M 3B3



We understand scheduling an ENC requires coordinating busy schedules.  We offer flexible office hours.

ENC takes place in-person at our downtown Barrie location, or in locations across the province.

The important and unique feature of ENC is you and your spouse hear information first at the same time, and from the same family consultant.

When you and your spouses have chosen a time that suits you both for the ENC, simply telephone and leave a message, or email, to schedule your ENC.  See the simple Intake Summary Form below.

We have created a simple, pay-as-you-go, fee for ENC.  We believe families need and want to save their money and resources.

Most family lawyers charge retainers.  These are deposits that each of you would pay your own lawyer toward future legal fees.  This form of payment is common practice among lawyers because it helps clients avoid liabilities they may find difficult to pay later.

Standard individual lawyer retainer payments may vary and range from $1,200 to over $5,000 (the higher retainers are usually for court proceedings).  If have an individual lawyer they will discuss retainers when you meet with them.

Our Family Consultants

  • are neutral experts
  • do not legally represent either of you, and do not provide legal advice to either of you

At Family Law Pathways Centre

  • we do not charge retainer payments for Early Neutral Consultation
  • each family attends for one single session
  • each consultation lasts for approx. 90 mins
  • the cost of the Early Neutral Consultation is a one time only fee of $200 (plus HST) per person (i.e., a total of $226 per person)

We understand that at the time of separation money and resources are scarce.  We believe there are many ways you can save time and family resources by making smart and informed pathway choices.  We provide valuable legal information first.  Early Neutral Consultation is a process for couples that empowers you and your family to choose the right pathways for you.

By using the information you receive in Early Neutral Consultation you will be in a better position to make informed choices and save your time and family resources well into the future.
