When family law issues arise, we understand that you want the best legal advice possible. Relationship breakdown is inherently difficult. At Ramsay Lampman Rhodes, our goal is to assist our clients in navigating a separation or divorce using a non-adversarial approach whenever possible. Our family law lawyers assist clients in negotiation, mediation and settlement discussions. However, when a collaborative approach is not effective, we provide our family law clients with experienced representation in the Supreme and Provincial Courts of British Columbia.
We have family law lawyers to assist you in each of our Nanaimo, Courtenay, and Port Alberni offices, providing convenient legal advice and representation to clients throughout the mid island, the Comox Valley, the Alberni Valley and throughout British Columbia.
We guide our family law clients through the difficult process of separation with a solution-oriented approach. Our separation and divorce lawyers can help you work toward a comprehensive separation agreement which addresses parenting arrangements, child support, spousal support, and property and debt division.
The complex financial implications of a separation or divorce may include pension division, corporate assets, and tax considerations. Our divorce and separation lawyers can help you navigate your rights and obligations to ensure your financial interests are protected.
Where children are involved, our separation lawyers will assist you in resolving parenting schedules, guardianship, and related matters with a focus on your child’s best interests.
If you are beginning a new relationship, our Nanaimo, Courtenay and Port Alberni family lawyers can help you plan for the future with a cohabitation or marriage agreement. Commonly known as a prenuptial agreement, a cohabitation agreement is a contract that sets out how you and your spouse or common law partner will divide your assets in the event of a future separation.
Contact one of our divorce and separation lawyers for professional assistance to strategically resolve family law issues with your long-term interests in mind.
Depending on your circumstances, you may benefit from mediation or arbitration to resolve your family law dispute. To learn more about these alternative dispute resolution tools visit our Family Mediation and Arbitration page.
