Vancouver Divorce Lawyers
It is widely understood that a divorce is one of the most difficult events you will experience in your lifetime. For this reason, it is critical that you have access to all the support you need to ensure the most effective and peaceful resolution possible. Equally important is that your rights are protected, and this requires proactive and ongoing efforts until an agreement is in place. Our Vancouver divorce lawyers advise and give advice on the best process – mediation, negotiation or litigation – to resolve your matter.
Our clients include men, women and members of the LGBTQ community who are seeking an exit from a variety of situations. We help you gain control and will unburden you from the legal demands of getting a divorce, whether contested or uncontested.
While you consider your next stage in life, we are tenaciously planning for your best possible outcome from your current situation. In some situations, this requires skilled strategies in managing a combative or difficult spouse. We can and will protect you, as we have done for many others.
If you have agreement on parenting arrangements, support and/or property issues, you still need the court to grant a divorce. In these situations, couples can apply jointly for divorce. Filing jointly eliminates the need to serve the other party and allows the couple to apply together for an uncontested or undefended divorce (also known as a “desk-order” divorce).
A divorce can proceed as uncontested or undefended in a sole application even if your spouse does not respond to your application. In these circumstances, a lawyer is recommended.
If spouses are willing to work together to reach a resolution on all outstanding issues, a costly court application should not be necessary. The most straight-forward situations can get complicated and issues can arise. Your divorce lawyer can ensure that timely and fair agreements are negotiated, saving you time and stress figuring out “how things work.”
Seeing you through the most difficult time in your life, while protecting your rights, is a privilege and one we do not take lightly.
