Family Law

Family disputes are emotionally draining, and we understand just how sensitive family law can be. We are here to help you through whatever you need. When you’re facing divorce, separation, or any legal issues affecting your family, you need lawyers with a distinctive mix of experience and understanding to navigate your situation.

We value your expectations and requirements. Above all, your best interest, safety, and privacy is our top-most priority. We offer the following family law services:

Custody Access

When you separate or divorce, you must arrange for the custody of the child. Custody is the legal right to be made and it's also the major decision to be taken so that the best interest of the child(ren) is taken care of. Custody can be of 2 types of Sole Custody and Joint Custody depending upon the situation. Our lawyers can help you work out the best parenting arrangements.

Divorce

Separation agreements and court orders can resolve some family matters when you separate but they do not legally end your marriage. The only way to legally end your marriage is to get a divorce. There are certain conditions to get a divorce and a statutory wait period before granting the divorce. You must be aware of all the legalities surrounding it thus It is important to speak with a lawyer to understand when you can obtain a divorce.

Child Support

Child Support is the right of the child and a liability of the non-custodian parent. The amount of child support payment depends on following aspects:

  • The number of children.
  • The province or territory where the paying parent lives
  • The paying parent’s annual income.

Apart from these factors that will impact the amount of child support, the following link gives you an idea of how child support is calculated - http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/child-enfant/look-rech.asp

Spousal Support

To decide on how much spousal support and the length of time that it should be paid, the law says that judges must consider a number of factors, including how much the person asking for support needs to meet his or her needs, and how much the other person can afford to pay.

Property Division

When a marriage ends, the equal contribution of each person to the marriage is recognized. The law provides that the value of any kind of property that was acquired by a spouse during the marriage and still exists at separation must be divided equally between the spouses. Also, any increase in the value of property owned by a spouse at the date of marriage must be shared. The payment that may be owed to one of the spouses in order to effect this sharing is called an equalization payment, or an equalization of net family property.

Domestic Contracts

Marriage contracts and cohabitation agreements can deal with how you divide property and pay spousal support if your relationship ends. But they cannot deal with issues about children. For example, they cannot say what your parenting plan will be or who will pay child support. A separation agreement is another kind of domestic contract. It can deal with plans for your children, as well as property division and spousal support. We work diligently to obtain an in-depth understanding of your objective and work alongside you to protect what matters most.
