    It depends on where you live. Sometimes they are heard by Judges who hear other matters as well, such as Landlord and Tenant Act or commercial disputes. However, in Ontario and other jurisdictions, the Courts are becoming increasingly specialized and many of them have now been assigned solely as courts that will only hear Family matters. For example, in Toronto, Ontario all family matters are heard at the Superior Court of Justice (Family Division) at 393 University Avenue. But in other parts of Ontario, which are less busy the same Judge will have a diversified list of cases to hear.
