FAMILY LAWYER IN BURLINGTON

If you’re looking for a family lawyer in Burlington or a family lawyer in Oakville then please contact my office.

By far one of the most contested, stressful and exhausting areas of law is family court. Many lawyers themselves become jaded after years of practicing family law. This causes them to not feel empathy for their clients. I have heard way too many stories of mothers and fathers complaining about how their family lawyer doesn't care about their needs.

Also, many family law lawyers forget that the process is emotionally crippling and soul sucking. I will do my best, to provide you with comfort, guidance and peace.

YOUR CHILDREN ARE MY TOP PRIORITY 

I always take the time to listen to the pain of a parent or to hear the frustrations of a spouse. At my law office your children and their future is always my top priority.

In most situations, I will always suggest court as the last option. However, I understand dire circumstances such as, negligent parenting, abusive parenting, parental alienation and a toxic environment.

CHILD CUSTODY/ACCESS

Child custody and or access to a child is definitely, one of the primarily reasons why family court cases can become viscous. On the breakdown of a marriage, parents must decide on custody arrangements for their children. In other words, who gets the kids. Parents have three options:

  • Sole Custody: The child lives with you and you are able to make all important life decisions. Unless, there is an separation agreement or court order that says otherwise.
  • Joint Custody: Both parents are involved in making decisions together. Children may live equally with both parents or not. What's important here is that relevant decisions affecting the child are made together.
  • Shared Custody: This is more about ensuring the children spend an equal amount of time with each parent. This can have implications on child support.
  • Split Custody: One parent will live with each child.

Unless, there are serious, harmful consequences I will always urge regular contact between parents and their children.

SPOUSAL SUPPORT

When a divorce or separation happens the financially weaker party make seek spousal support.

CHILD SUPPORT 

On the breakdown of a marriage child support will be payable to the parent with primary custody of the children.

WHAT IS A SEPARATION AGREEMENT?

If the husband and wife are willing to work together, a separation agreement is an effective way to save money and headaches.

DIVORCE AND PROPERTY

Dividing up property and assets after a divorce can be hectic and exhausting. There are various issues that arise.

ARE YOU THE VICTIM OF PARENTAL ALIENATION?

Parental alienation is a concept that has started to gain recognition over the last few years. This is where one parent, primarily the one who has custody engages in a toxic smearing of the other parent referred to as the target parent. The children in this scenario suffer tremendously. Social support services rarely if ever recognize or acknowledge parental alienation. 

MARRIAGE CONTRACT
