Separation Agreements | Spousal Support

Hire A Lawyer Who Has Success. When you are looking into divorce lawyers, it’s important to know how hiring a lawyer works. Let’s say that you need legal advice or legal services. First of all, make sure you are not looking for “family law attorney” or “law attorney” as those are American terms. We also don’t call it an “attorney-client relationship.” Instead, we say lawyer-client privilege. You will need to find a “lawyer”, which is the term for Canada.

Queen’s counsel is the term for a very senior, and therefore expensive lawyer. These lawyers have been practicing for a long time, and they might charge $600-1000 an hour. Average Canada might only be able to afford legal fees of $250-350/hour, so it’s important to know your budget. If you are looking for the best lawyer, and you can afford it, a Queen’s counsel lawyer might be a good fit for you.

These are big law firms in Vancouver, such as Ylaw Group and Maclean Law. And there are also many sole practisers or small law firms.

Dispute Resolution | Family Lawyer Vancouver

When you are having disputes with your spouse, it’s a good idea to speak to a lawyer. They can explain your options regarding domestic agreements. You might be able to agree to spousal support in a separation agreement.

It’s also important to know if you are looking for a dispute resolution or a collaborative law lawyer. If you plan to find things out in court, these types of law lawyers would not be a good fit. Instead, you might search for a “family law disputes” lawyer instead.

Some people have created a parenting plan and are looking for a lawyer to communicate for them. Sometimes the other side might simply be acting difficult. When a lawyer sends the parenting plan, the other side takes it seriously.

There are specific issues involving a relationship breakdown. The family lawyers will help clients overcome their family law issues when marriages break down. It can mean putting together custody and parental arrangement. Also, it could be helping with child and marital support disputes.
