Give Us A Call
Property Division

Property Division

Property division can be a contentious issue in a divorce or separation, as couples may not agree on what is a fair and equitable division of assets. Variables such as the length of relationship and whether it is a common-law relationship versus a married couple, can influence how property is divided. While some aspects of property division may be easy for couples to agree upon, other assets and property can be complex to understand the equalization process. 

Parenting Arrangements

Parenting Arrangements

The parenting arrangement is a very important process because it involves the care of your children after the separation or divorce. Important child raising decisions such as education, health care, activities and so on are sorted out through a parenting arrangement. 

Child Support

Child Support

In British Columbia, parents have a legal obligation to provide child support. This obligation applies to married or unmarried parents. The exact child support amount is determined by several factors including custody division and income. Under current legislation, child support obligations are in place until the child turns 19 and can remain in place longer if the child remains financially dependent on the parent.

Spousal Support

Spousal Support

Spousal support is money paid by one spouse to another following a divorce or separation. If one spouse earns significantly more than the other, in many cases, the lower earning spouse is entitled to support payments. The exact amount and length of time spousal support applies depends on many factors, such as length of the relationship, how many children and your role in the marriage.

Marriage Contracts & Cohabitation Agreements

Marriage Contracts & Cohabitation Agreements

When couples enter a relationship and wish to address certain areas such as property division and spousal support arrangements beforehand, they may consider a marriage contract or cohabitation agreement. Having such an arrangement in place can make it easier to determine property division, spousal support and other issues that may arise should the relationship end.
