Difficult Time

Interests Of The Child

ClearWay Law acknowledges how expensive it can be to hire a family lawyer. In addition to providing amazing customer service, we also want to offer great rates. In other lawyers that we speak to, their average client fee is $10,000.

The family law industry sometimes pushes clients into confrontation instead of quickly resolving their issues.

Sometimes when people call us with a legal issue, they think they want to go to court. That is of course until we tell them they might end up spending $10,000. Instead, it is better to take an approach of negotiation, where you might be able to settle your family law matter for $1500.

Starting around January 2020, we plan to offer family law templates that you can purchase on our website. This will be for people that have no money for a lawyer to help them. We always recommend getting a family lawyer to help you and to provide legal advice. But for some, they simply cannot afford it. The templates will be the best solution for them.

The templates are created by our family lawyer, and you will fill out all your information and get a recommendation for which template you should download.

Parenting Responsibilities

When you reach out to a family law firm, it is best to share as much information as possible. We prefer when clients book directly on our home page by booking a time and date that works for them. Explain the following about your case:

  • What legal issue do you have?
  • What is the desired outcome?
  • Who is the other person?
  • Are there any upcoming court dates?
  • Do you and/or the other spouse have property?

Our top lawyers pride themselves on getting back to clients extremely fast. Often people with legal issues call us at 8 pm or on weekends, and we answer. Due to massive call volumes, we have got a bit slower. Some other lawyers take over a week to get back to clients. That is completely unacceptable.

Many clients focus on price when speaking to a law firm, but we believe that amazing communication and resolving an issue quickly is far more important.

If you are looking for sole custody in BC, you need a law firm and a lawyer that cares about your needs. You don’t want to feel like a transaction.

An easy way to save money is to only way for you need. If you only need to file a divorce, you should only pay a law firm to file a divorce. Don’t let a lawyer talk you into a contested custody battle that costs $10,000.

Family Violence

In some courts in Canada, 70% of people are without a lawyer. If they are up against a lawyer on the other side, they will have a hard time. Even though they know it will be a hard fight against a family lawyer, they would rather do it themselves.

According to a legal trend report in 2018, it’s not because of cost. It’s because the average person thinks it’s too much stress to work with a lawyer. They would rather handle a stressful situation like sole custody by themselves. It’s obvious that the family law industry is broken to anyone who is looking.

Many clients want help with a legal issue, but they don’t know if it’s worth it to hire a lawyer? Will a lawyer really make a difference? Some people going through a family law issue like divorce might become untrusting of people around them.

Dealing with a law firm doesn’t need to be so complicated. If you have a legal issue, we can tell you roughly how much it’s going to cost. We can explain how we are going to help you. Once you sign a letter of engagement and provide us with your ID, we get to work on what you asked us to do.

We want ClearWay Law to be the fix to the issue in the industry.

Sole Custody in BC | How To Get It

As mentioned above, you are going to need to convince the judge that awarding you sole custody is in the best interests of the child. We put together videos that will help explain.

You will allow need to show that your house is the most stable environment for the child. Keep in the mind the other party will likely try and show situations that have happened in the past where the environment was not stable. In family law, there is often an opposing party who will try and make things difficult for you. Therefore, family law can get expensive.

When you try for sole custody, you will also need to show the same thing. You will want to show that the other parent doesn’t have the ability to take care of the child. You will need to show that where the opposing party is living is an unstable environment for the child.


Does The Child Always Go With The Mother?

Absolutely not. The courts prefer that the child can spend time with both the father and the mother.

Mothers and fathers bring different lessons and skills to a child, and if possible, it’s best the child sees both parents.

That being said, the courts are not going to put a child in an unsafe environment. Having a child custody lawyer help you prepare your materials for court can make a big difference if you win your case.

When you are trying to set up parenting arrangements and support, think about the following:

  • The income of yourself and the other party
  • How many children you have
  • The ages of the children
  • With who the children are living
  • Where the children are living
