Divorce and separation from a common-law relationship are highly stressful events involving strong emotions. Contact Kim & Lake Law for legal advice and objective guidance throughout this process.
We will inform you of your rights and obligations and lead you through to the end of all matters involving divorce and separation, while protecting your interests.
If there are children involved, it is important to remember that the only criteria the Courts will be concerned with in relation to custody and access is the principle of “best interests of the child”. While recently separated parents are often motivated by strong emotions, we will guide you through the process to work in the best interest of the child and settle the legal matters outside of Court, or via trial before a Judge.
It is strongly recommended that you obtain legal advice immediately upon separation, so that all of your conduct will be in the best interest of the child, and in a manner that will favour your case before a Judge.
