Family Law

The breakdown of a personal relationship, whether marriage or common-law, can be extremely stressful and impact on all areas of life.

Clients often worry about what will happen to their children, where they will live, how they will support themselves and how they will be able to afford to rent or purchase a new home going forward.

Starting from your initial consultation, one of our lawyers will take the time to understand your most pressing concerns and provide you with the information that you require in order to start resolving your family law dispute and rebuilding your life, post separation.

We are experienced in the resolution of all aspects of family law matters.  We offer a variety of approaches to resolving family law disputes including:

  • Negotiation
  • Collaborative Law Process
  • Litigation

With our specialized knowledge and experience, we assist our clients in reaching a negotiated settlement and, where settlement is not possible, in litigating cases that involve:

  • Cohabitation Agreements
  • Marriage Contracts
  • Separation Agreements
  • Custody of Children
  • Custody
  • Child and Spousal Support
  • Division of Property/ Debt (Equalization of Net Family Property)
