The end of a marriage or common-law relationship, whether yours is an opposite or same-sex relationship, with or without children, is a stressful time. The emotional, social and lifestyle impacts of separation and divorce are profound and far-reaching. Emotions are running high during this time, making decisions about your future that much more challenging. Concerns about the children and their well being are overwhelming. Assets such as the family house, bank accounts, investments and pensions need to be divided and any debts need to be addressed.
Race and Company’s lawyers understand the sensitive nature of family disputes and how emotional they can be. We also understand that discretion, compassion and experience are needed to negotiate and resolve matters such as child custody, guardianship and access, child support, spousal maintenance, division of family assets, divorce and variation applications. At Race and Company, we work with you to understand your specific family situation and future needs, ensure that you are informed of your legal rights and options for resolution, and help guide you through the dispute resolution process so that you can reach a timely resolution of all family matters, whether by way of Separation Agreement, court application or trial.
In addition to helping families deal with the end of a marriage, our lawyers can also help in the preparation of prenuptial or co-habitation agreements.
