Our philosophy is one of using a conciliatory approach with the objective of maintaining the family peace while at the same time limiting costs.
If there is an area of practice in which we have a wealth and depth of experience, it is in Family Law. In this respect, our office has handled many complex and highly contentious cases.
A divorce or a separation is a painful experience in its own right. This is even more so the case when a dispute arises concerning the custody of children or the payment of alimony. The same can be said for the dividing of assets, i.e. the partnership of acquests or the family patrimony. And when the dispute festers within the framework of a common-law union, that is, between common-law spouses, the issue of property division can become even more problematic.
It also happens that the parties’ family or financial situation may change, which necessitates that rulings determining custody or alimony be revised in order to take into account the parties’ new situation.
Our philosophy is one of using a conciliatory approach with the objective of maintaining the family peace while at the same time limiting costs. Yet, whenever a husband, wife, or common law spouse multiply acts of bad faith or abusive procedures, we know what stance to take and thereby serve our clients with a demonstration of firmness and determination which become necessary in such cases.
