ACCOMPANIMENT TO MUNICIPAL COURT
The Clinique Droits Devant’s community workers accompany people who have lived, are currently living or are at risk of living homelessness to contest their tickets at the Municipal Court or to lift a warrant of arrest in criminal matters.
ACCOMPANIMENT TO THE COURTHOUSE
Accompaniment to the Montreal Courthouse is offered to people who have lived, are currently living or are at risk of living homelessness to contest their tickets linked to provincial or federal legislation (e.g. tickets given by CN (railway service) or Sûreté du Québec officers). A community worker from the Clinique can also accompany a person for any appearance in court or to lift an arrest warrant in criminal matters if the person is a user or our services.
Our community workers offer information on penal procedure and on the proceedings of a hearing, assist in requesting the disclosure of evidence and provide moral support and accompaniment during the day of the hearing, free of charge.
Warning! The Clinique’s community workers are not lawyers and thus cannot give legal advice nor plead in court.
