Divorce and Separation
When filing for divorce or when facing the legal issues of family breakdown or the divorce process you need a lawyer who knows the divorce process, knows BC Family Law and has life experience as well as legal experience.
I have been practicing family law for more than 30 years and I perform all services personally without shifting your file to a junior.
Separation and Divorce are always serious matters. Whether you have significant assets or you are of modest means, relationship exit strategies can be highly complex and personally challenging. You need a Vancouver divorce lawyer with both life and legal experience to effectively apply strategic approaches to your divorce or separation. This is especially so when children are involved and there are serious questions of child custody, guardianship and access at stake.
Where there is a corporation or family trust involved, you need someone who understands B.C. Business Corporations and has had corporate experience in order to obtain effective analysis of the issues. I taught company law and other subjects at the U.B.C. law school for 3 years as an Assistant Professor of Law. I have also provided advice not only to companies and key corporate officers who were involved in matrimonial disputes but also to individuals married to persons who held key positions in corporations where they derived perks, non-arms length benefits and tax advantages.
When considering division of matrimonial assets it is important to carefully consider the tax ramifications of various approaches to resolve these issues. Life and legal experience is critical to a proper analysis of these complex issues.
