WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING 

“Brian has worked tirelessly with me on an extremely complex, challenging, and contentious file. His extensive experience in family matters and his unmatched work ethic has made the process so much easier and very successful. Brian often checks in on his own time, just to ensure the family is ok. I truly believe that his level of devotion and compassion is rarely seen in this field. Brian really, truly cares about people, and goes that extra mile. I’ve been blessed to have him represent me and there’s no one I would trust more to do that.”

Divorce

Marriage is a contract. A complicated contract. A lawyer negotiates custody, child access, support, and asset division. That takes time, but if you compromise, work with us, and be patient, you will be divorced. You will then have a new contract, a separation agreement, which clarifies custody, child access, support and asset division. The object is to get you moved on with your life!

Child Custody

The law, as a custodian, rests with you. The better able to work with your former spouse, the less your lawyer is involved with less costs. Where I assist: Almost all files require mediation. Negotiating custody ensures you are informed and that you participate in your child’s education and health; the basic entitlements of a parent! By a decree of a court Order or Judgment, usually consented to, or by a separation agreement, custody and parenting are terms of your new contract.

Child Abduction

Removing a child from the community is contrary to the law. This often occurs within Canada. I quickly obtain a court Order obliging a child’s return. That Order is then filed where the child is. Enforcement steps can follow. Quick action once had a child returned from Ontario within weeks. The Hague Convention, international law, means you must act within six months from the date of abduction.

Travelling With Your Child

On your way to Disneyland? Mexico? Hawaii? Usually not a problem. Buy your tickets and give notice. Usually a notarized letter does it. If disputed, a court Order can be obtained enabling you and your children to travel. I have assisted in dozens of such cases sometimes at the last minute.

Mobility

You or your spouse want to relocate with a child. This is difficult. Sometimes this is negotiable. More often this requires a court hearing. The moving spouse must demonstrate how the child’s life is enhanced. If not, very likely your child stays put. I have assisted persons wanting to move and successfully so. I have also blocked court applications. Teach me the facts and I will increase your chances of success in court.

Child & Spousal Support

Child Support:

Support terms appear in a court Order/Judgment or a separation agreement. Shared parenting? This is becoming quite common. If so, child support is minimized. But child support is payable, to clothe, feed and house a child throughout school and sometimes beyond.

Post-secondary tuition? Do not despair. If negotiated early, such expenses are often negotiated with costs distributed between parents and the dependent child.

Spousal support:

Use a free line program for a start. https://www.mysupportcalculator.ca/
But support is not just about income. That is a mistake. Length of relationship, education, health and child support are just as important. So too is a well prepared and honest budget. An accurate budget is more revealing of one’s ability to pay than income. It has been my experience that use of a mediator is the means to conclude spousal support.

Property Disputes

If you had nothing at marriage, assume that assets and debt are equally divisible. Exchanging financial information in the form of a well-crafted spreadsheet is a start. Expect some back and forth over proposals. If not settled early, an effective mediator usually gets a result after either a half or a full day. This is a cost, but is
far more economical than court; And reducing terms to writing is a starting point to your next contract, a separation agreement.
