EMOTIONS ARE RUNNING HIGH WHEN A MARRIAGE ENDS. MUCH IS AT STAKE. YOUR CHILDREN. YOUR PROPERTY. YOUR MONEY. Life-changing questions arise. When do I get to see my kids? Can I collect child support? Can I collect spousal support? Can I settle outside of court without giving everything away? You should not have to answer these questions alone. The right lawyer can make all the difference in helping you get the results you deserve as you move through this life transition.
I have been empowering men and women like you to make informed choices throughout a divorce;
I can help you navigate the often confusing rules of the Family Law Act, and the Divorce Act;
I can help you create a parenting time schedule with the best interest of your kids in mind;
I can help you obtain child support;
I can tell you what spousal support you will pay, or receive;
I can also help you draft a separation agreement that will stand the test of time; and
I am also not afraid to go to trial to get you the result you are looking for when it is not possible to obtain a separation agreement.
