Experts in Family Law Litigation

Attending court can be a daunting prospect. The court process can be intimidating and confusing. This is particularly true if you are in court to deal with an emotionally stressful family law issue. Our experienced and skillful lawyers can help minimize the stress involved with the court process. We have extensive courtroom experience and have helped thousands of clients through family law court appearances and trials. Our courtroom expertise can make the difference between success and failure at trial.


Our lawyers may also be able to assist you if you’ve already attended court and lost. If you’ve already gone through a hearing or trial, and you are unhappy with the decision, you may be able to appeal to a higher court. Our lawyers have appeared at all levels of court in British Columbia; including the British Columbia Court of Appeal. We have successfully appealed a number of lower-court decisions for our clients.

Guidance in Negotiating and Preparing Marriage and Separation Agreements in Kamloops

Our skills as lawyers do not end at the courthouse steps. We are regularly called upon by our clients to help them negotiate their issues and draft formal written agreements outside of court. While few people actively want to end up in a courtroom, the emotionally charged atmosphere that surrounds family law issues can make negotiations outside of court a difficult process. Our skills and sensitivity in this field can help break those difficult deadlocks. Our expertise can also identify critical issues you may have neglected to consider.

Even if you have successfully negotiated an agreement yourselves outside of court without the assistance of a lawyer, it is still important to have a lawyer draft up or review that agreement. The Supreme Court of Canada has indicated that settlements where lawyers are involved in negotiating, drafting or at least reviewing the final agreement are more enforceable than agreements prepared without a lawyer’s involvement. Our lawyers have extensive experience in preparing formal written agreements. We can help you prepare an agreement that will be clear, concise and enforceable by the courts.


Types of Family Law Agreements:


  • Family law agreements are not only limited to issues arising upon divorce or separation. If you are starting a new relationship, or planning to get married, you may also benefit from a formal legal agreement.
  • Marriage or Cohabitation Agreements deal with what will happen with property, liabilities, children and support issues if the relationship or marriage breaks down in the future. These agreements can be particularly important for blended families.

Discussing these issues at the outset of the relationship and preparing a formal written agreement can grant peace of mind and allow couples to move forward with a happy, healthy relationship. Please call us to make an appointment with our family law lawyers in Kamloops.
