Protect What You Value Most
When your family's future is at stake, you need knowledge and experience that you can count on. There is a surplus of divorce lawyers in Vancouver, but it is essential to recognize the difference between a divorce attorney and a family law attorney. Although the terms are sometimes used interchangeably, divorce law is only one of many issues encompassed by family law. A divorce attorney may not have the necessary skills or knowledge to represent you in any family law matter other than a divorce. On the other hand, a family law attorney can handle divorce litigation and any premarital or post marital family law issues.
A legal separation means the spouses are separating but not ending their marriage. It means more than living in separate homes. One spouse may file a legal action, known as a petition for legal separation. As in a dissolution, you must decide how your property and debts will be divided. You must determine if you need support, maintenance, or alimony or must pay such support or alimony. If you have children, you must decide on a parenting plan and issues related to child support.
