Our Legal Services

Divorce & Separation

Divorce and separation can be one of the most challenging times in a person’s life, emotionally and financially. Legal services that provide assistance in divorce and separation aim to make the process as smooth and straightforward as possible for all parties involved. These services can help individuals navigate through the legal requirements and procedures of divorce, including filing paperwork, dividing property, negotiating spousal maintenance and child support, and determining parenting and custody arrangements for children. An experienced family lawyer can also provide support and guidance to clients, helping them understand their legal rights and responsibilities and advocating for their best interests. In addition, divorce and separation legal services can provide counselling and referral resources to help individuals cope with the emotional stress of ending a relationship and moving forward with their lives.

Parenting Arrangement & Children Matters

Parenting arrangements and children matters can be complex and emotionally charged, especially when there is a dispute over custody or access. Legal services that deal with parenting and children matters aim to ensure that children’s best interests are protected while respecting the rights of both parents. These services can assist parents in creating a parenting plan that outlines the details of child custody, access, and support arrangements. They can also help parents resolve disputes through negotiation or mediation, avoiding the need for court intervention. An experienced family lawyer can provide guidance and advocacy to parents during the process, ensuring that their rights and responsibilities are upheld.

Mediation, Arbitration & Collaborative Practice

Mediation, arbitration and collaborative practice are alternative dispute resolution services that provide an effective and less adversarial way to resolve legal disputes. Mediation involves a neutral third party who facilitates communication between parties, identifies common ground, and helps them reach an agreement. Arbitration involves an arbitrator who hears evidence and
makes a binding decision on the dispute. Collaborative Practice enables couples who have separated or ended their marriage to work with their collaboratively trained lawyers in order to avoid the uncertain outcome of court and to achieve a settlement that best meets the specific needs of both parties and their children without the underlying threat of litigation. These services can be used in various legal matters, including divorce and separation, property disputes, and commercial disputes. The benefits of mediation, arbitration and collaborative practice include faster resolution, reduced costs, and greater flexibility in the outcome. An experienced mediator, arbitrator, or collaborative practitioner can provide impartial and professional guidance throughout the process, ensuring that all parties’ interests are protected.

Property Settlements, Consent Orders & Financial Agreement

Property settlements can be a contentious issue in divorce and separation proceedings, especially when significant assets are involved. Legal services that deal with property settlements and capture what assets a party will receive or retain by formal and legally binding agreements. Consent Orders capture the agreement the parties have reached and ensure that their agreement is acceptable and enforceable by the Family Court.  Financial Agreements are legally binding contracts that set out how the parties will deal with their financial settlement and who gets what property when they separate.  Both arrangements aim to ensure that each party receives a fair share of the property and assets accumulated during the relationship. These services can help individuals identify and value their assets, negotiate property division, and draft legally binding consent orders and financial agreements. An experienced family lawyer can provide advocacy and guidance throughout the process, ensuring that clients’ rights and interests are protected.

Family Violence & Restraining Orders

Family violence is a serious issue that can have devastating consequences for victims and their families. It is equally a difficult process for those who have been restrained and are prevented from having a relationship with their children, restricted from having access to their property or entering their homes. Legal services that deal with family violence and Restraining Orders aim to provide protection and support for victims and guidance and direction to those who have been displaced by a protection order. These services can assist victims in obtaining family violence restraining orders and providing legal and other support services to the restrained party in navigating the legal system. An experienced family lawyer can provide advocacy and representation, ensuring that safety and protection are a priority.

Wills & Estate

Wills and estate legal services assist individuals in planning for the distribution of their assets and property after their death. A will is a legally binding document that outlines an individual’s wishes for the distribution of their assets and property. These services can assist individuals in creating a valid and effective will, including identifying and valuing assets, naming beneficiaries, and appointing executors. Estate planning services can also provide guidance on estate administration, including probate, which is the legal process of validating a deceased person’s will.
