Family Law


Our family lawyers understand the complex legal issues involved in married and common law relationships and that helping clients successfully resolve these issues requires more than knowledge of the law. We know that clients are trusting us during a difficult time and that they need a family lawyer that listens and understands their situation.

Our goal is to bring compassion, determination and practical guidance to the resolution of these problems.

Whether the family matter involves negotiation of an agreement before marriage or plans after the dissolution of a marriage or common law relationship, the impact can be substantial. We provide a wide range of family law services and years of practical experience involving the sensitive aspects of families in transition. These include dealing with issues such as:

  • divorce
  • spousal maintenance
  • child custody, guardianship and access
  • child support
  • division of property
  • marriage and cohabitation agreements
  • separation agreements
  • enforcement of court orders and judgments
  • mediation
  • restraining orders

We counsel clients on the most efficient way to settle their family law disputes. We endeavor to resolve disputes by way of negotiated settlements and we promote the use of mediation in the appropriate circumstances. When issues cannot be resolved through negotiation, we will protect your rights and seek a fair solution through courtroom proceedings. Our lawyers are experienced in trial work, and have appeared in all levels of Court in British Columbia on family law matters.

Our family lawyers also draw on the knowledge of other firm lawyers with a variety of special skills to provide comprehensive advice and guide our clients safely through complex family matters, disputes and litigation

We can assist you. Please do not hesitate to contact one of our family lawyers to schedule a one hour confidential consultation.
