In some other parts of Ontario family jurisdiction is split between the Superior Court of Justice and Ontario Court of Justice.

L'Orignal Family Court Hours & Setup
Courthouse hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The courthouse is comprised of a hodgepodge of additions that appear to have transpired over many decades. Central hallways don't connect every office and courtroom, so you may have to walk up and down some stairs and ask for directions if you get lost, which is easy to do.
It all has a certain quaintness despite the confusion. The one courtroom and one case conference room is located on the second floor, near the front of the building. The court clerk's office is also on the second floor, but you have to walk downstairs, along a long hallway, and then back upstairs to get there from the courtrooms.
There is currently no security screening for visitors to the courthouse.
