Custody and Access
When leaving a relationship where children are involved, our first concern is their safety, stability, and mental health. Where co-parenting is possible, we will help you implement joint custody and shared parenting plans to support your kids as they grow and their needs change.
If sharing custody is not an option, we will provide the Court with appropriate ways to manage your new family situation in ways that support your children's best interests, while keeping them away from adult issues as much as possible.
Our lawyers are experienced in handling custody and access matters where there may be concerns about domestic violence, substance abuse, or safety issues with one parent.
Division of Property & Spousal Support
Throughout your relationship, you and your former partner may have supported each other or accumulated money and property that now needs to be divided - and you may have signed a pre-nuptial agreement or domestic contract that needs to be reviewed.
Our office has experience with high-net separation issues, including those where international property, ownership of businesses, or significant estates may be a concern.
Depending on your financial situation, you may also be entitled to spousal support if your partner was the higher earner or you stayed home to care for family. Call us now to speak to a lawyer who can help you evaluate and preserve your rights to property and support.
