We can represent you in a wide range of family law matters, including:

Family law: We can help you with marital, parental, financial and other legal concerns.

Child welfare: We help parents who are unjustly targeted by a children's aid society.

Spousal support: We will interpret the Canada Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines so you know how much you could possibly be required to pay or receive, and will pursue your best interests and strive for fair solutions.

Child support: We will help you navigate the Child Support Guidelines and will diligently represent your side.

High income child support and spousal support: Support issues can get complicated quickly when a spouse has high income and substantial assets. We will help guide you through the process.

Protecting professional practices: When professionals such as dentists, doctors and lawyers go through a divorce, the value of their professional practice (as fixed by the court) may be part of a property division (or "equalization of net family property"). We do our utmost to help you protect what you have spent a lifetime building.

Paternity fraud: We represent fathers in matters involving paternity fraud.

Mediation: We can use this less contentious method to help you reach an amicable agreement outside of the courtroom.
