We’ll help you reach a resolution

Personal relationships are the fibre of our community. We also recognize that those relationships change over time. Children get older, our goals may change, our needs may shift over time. Sometimes relationships can survive and even thrive throughout these changes, sometimes they can’t.

The breakdown of a marriage, union or domestic partnership is never easy. Your life will change in ways you probably never expected. Divorce and separation bring dramatic changes to a family’s lifestyle and routines. Much of the change concerns new living arrangements for the parties and the children. Finances are also impacted.

When a relationship breaks down, it’s important to be proactive and protect your family’s interests, as well as your own. Our team of lawyers will help you find the right resolution for your situation.
