Divorce and Family Law

Family Law is:

  • The law of divorce which decides, for married couples: the parenting and residence of children; the payment of child support; the payment of spousal support; and the division of property
  • The law of parental rights and responsibilities which decides, for unmarried partners: the parenting and residence of children; and the payment of child support
  • The law of parentage which identifies the legal parents of children, including:  children of married parents; children who are parented by others, known in the law as “de facto parents”; children born of artificial reproduction; and children who are born of  surrogates
  • The law of protection from abuse which decides: orders to protect the safety of family members and children from abusive treatment; the parenting and residence of children; and the payment of child support
  • The law of enforcement and contempt which decides: collection of child support, spousal support or property awards previously ordered by the court; and sanctions against those persons who disobey previous court orders

We assist our clients by:

  • Representing husbands, wives and unmarried partners in the process of separation or divorce.  This involves negotiation with other parties and attorneys, as well as representation of clients in court and in mediation.
  • Assisting people who are in need of protection from abuse from others within their households.
