Note: Information applies to parents who had separated or divorced in the previous 20 years and who still had children aged 18 or under at the time of the survey. The survey question allows multiple answers on the type of written arrangement (e.g. use a lawyer and family justice services). This table, however, provides information based on the highest level of involvement by courts or legal services. Therefore, percentages in the table for use of a lawyer, for example, do not include respondents who also reported using family justice service help, or having a judge-ordered arrangement.
