Divorce isn’t easy for anyone; a break-up of common law partners isn’t any easier, either. Aside from the emotional aspects of a split, there are several other factors that can make things even more difficult – you may have financial issues, disagree with your former partner about how your assets should be divided, or have to face any number of other obstacles.
It’s important that you work with a family law lawyer who understands where you’re coming from; one who can see things from your point-of-view. You need a lawyer who knows the difference between a successful divorce and an unsuccessful divorce, and one who puts your needs first.
As a family law lawyer with a thorough understanding of divorce proceedings, I can also help you deal with child custody and access rights, parental authority and child support or alimony. Additionally, I can help clear up estate and will disputes. Finally, I can assist you with the enforcement of foreign judgments.
Québec laws regarding common law partners are, in some respects, similar to those that apply to married couples, but they differ in others. I can help you sort out issues regarding custody and access rights, child support and parental authority. If you are embroiled in a dispute related to the family residence or the partition of assets, I will help you negotiate a fair agreement with your partner and put it in writing. If legal action becomes necessary, I will work hard to make sure that you get the best outcome possible.
This is a tough time for you; I know that. I’ll do my best to help you through it while being sensitive to your needs. Call me at (514) 381-3064, EXT 204 to discover how I can protect your rights.
