Innisfil and Barrie Family Lawyers
When you are trying to resolve a family law issue, it can be a very painful and difficult time. Whether you have been cohabiting common-law or married, the uncertainty about the future and the complexity of the laws can sometimes be overwhelming. At times like these it is important to have an experienced family lawyer right beside you who will work to conserve your financial assets and minimize emotional harms. If you have children, we never lose sight of how important they are to you and how much you care about every issue relating to them.
Family law is always a serious matter. Exit strategies can be highly complex and challenging. We will work diligently to negotiate an agreement that protects your interests. When an agreement cannot be reached, we use our experience as litigators to seek a fair resolution in court.
We are prepared to assist you with any family law issue, including:
- Separation and divorce
- Custody and access
- Child and spousal support
- Property division and equalization of net family property
- Marriage agreements
- Prenuptial agreements
- Separation agreements
- Cohabitation agreements
- Same sex marriage and GLBT family law matters
Collaborative Family Law
Collaborative family law is a relatively new concept in North America. In these cases, both spouses and their lawyers sign an agreement to work through all disputes together, rather than pursue litigation. If an agreement cannot be reached, the spouses obtain new representation from different firms and start over. We have experience handling all aspects of collaborative family law matters and use the team approach to involve financial, parenting and divorce coaches.
