Family Law Services We Offer
Here at Sidhu Legal, we have a qualified legal team to offer the following services:
Our divorce lawyers have a duty to discuss the possibility of reconciliation as the first option. When this is not possible, they will handle the divorce proceedings for an amicable settlement, with all interests considered.
Division of Property
Each partner is entitled to a share of the family property when a divorce happens. Family law guards the rights of each partner to a fair share of the property. This includes family home(s), money in cash and at the bank, RRSPs, pension funds, shares and other properties. However, family debts are also shared.
The law requires that the rights of the child or children come first. Our family lawyers will help settle issues on guardianship, custody, and access to the children. This also includes parental responsibilities and parenting time. Alternative dispute resolution mechanisms like mediation and negotiation are preferred when dealing with children to lower the risk of traumatizing the children. If you require a child custody lawyer in Surrey or other lower mainland BC communities contact Sidhu Law.
Child Support & Spousal Support
When a divorce occurs the partner who gets custody of the children is entitled to continued support from the ex-partner including support for upkeep that maintains the standard of living for the custodian and the children. Our lawyers are able to work out a comprehensive child and spousal support agreement.
Family Law Agreements
Family law agreements are encouraged instead of going to court. Our legal team is well trained in mediation, negotiation and parenting coordination. The good thing is that a family law agreement can be entered in any stage of a relationship. An agreement saves time, money and the emotional distress for the whole family. Some of the agreements we draft include marriage agreements, prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements and separation agreements.
If you feel that the current agreement is not favorable because of changed circumstances, we can help craft variation of these orders for a better arrangement.
Family Law Litigation
When all other mechanisms fail to enforce an agreement, we can help you seek redress in the courts using family law litigation. Our highly trained lawyers will adequately represent you and defend your rights in a court of law.
