Family Law Services: divorce, cohabitation & separation agreements, litigation, mediation & collaborative non-litigation services

OUR MISSION: WE WORK WITH YOU We work with you closely from an in-depth analysis of your facts, goals and needs. These may have a broad range: Some require immediate urgent steps to protect assets or family members. Most of our clients do not require such urgent measures and their file progresses reasonably and quietly, to conclude in a written Agreement and final Order for divorce or separation. We advise our clients to select the approach most suited to most successfully meet the client's needs and goals. The firm's approach is modern: a mix of classic lawyering with a modern edge. Accessible and results oriented, we are a change from elbows up posturing and costly litigation. Our focus is balance and proportionality. Most important to us is that our clients' family relationships are preserved and not sidelined by protracted litigation. Well-managed family law files provide our clients with reassurance and stability.

COVID-19 has had a substantial impact on many Canadian's livelihoods, and while we talked about Child Support in past blogs, Spousal Support can also be impacted by changes to your financial situation. This week's blog (bit.ly/2SDOFYt) explores how to navigate Spousal Support during this difficult time.

Spousal Support agreements continue to apply during the pandemic, and when your financial situation changes, it's important to notify your ex as soon as a change to your income is known. It is imperative to document all your communication with your ex, and to keep records of your financial situation to help justify your case for revision to your agreement before the courts.

Dealing with child custody is often challenging and complex at the best of times. In this week's family law blog, (bit.ly/2VJMX9T) we explore how COVID-19 impacts custody, and how the courts are dealing with situations in which a parent believes that the other parent is not following proper COVID-19 protocols.

If you have concerns that your child is being put at risk as a result of the other custody holder's actions, filing an emergency motion is often a good course of action. If you can submit tangible, material evidence that the other parent is failing, unable, or refusing to adhere to appropriate COVID-19 protocols, you may be able to modify the custody arrangement you have.

There are a variety of factors that impact child custody cases during COVID-19, including the child's health, the health of those who reside in a household with the child, steps taken by each party to mitigate or minimize risk, and the usual relevant factors outlined in the Family Law Act.

As COVID-19 continues to impact British Columbia, there have been significant changes to the Courts in this extraordinary time. This week's blog ( bit.ly/3bnweyG ) explores some of these changes.

The BC Provincial Court is not currently filing any documents unless you have been directed by the Court, and all matters that are not deemed to be urgent have been adjourned. If you're dealing with a family law matter that is urgent, you can submit an emergency notice of motion and if a judge agrees that it is an urgent matter, proceedings can happen over the phone.

The BC Supreme Court has also suspended regular operations, and unless you have an urgent matter, your case will be delayed until the Court deems it safe to consider. In contrast to the BC Provincial Court, the Supreme Court is processing documents electronically.

The Court of Appeal has adjourned all matters to be heard until May 1st, and it will issue further updates as that date approaches.

Westside Family Law is here to help you during this stressful, challenging time. If you have any questions regarding the changes to the process, get in touch today at bit.ly/3e17fTy

Angus Reid reports that 42% of B.C. households have experienced reduced hours or layoffs as a result of COVID-19. Changes to your income make child support obligations an increased challenge, and this week's blog (https://bit.ly/34zmONS) explores how to navigate meeting your legal obligations in this difficult time.

B.C.'s courts are closed to all but urgent applications as a result of COVID-19, so varying a child support Order cannot occur until courts begin to re-open. As a result, it's ideal if the payer and recipient can agree on a change in child support given the complex circumstances at hand. This should begin with the payer providing written notice to the recipient as soon as possible, and it is crucial that any and all changes are documented in anticipation of the courts re-opening for non-urgent cases.

If you have questions about what COVID-19 means for your child support, Westside Family Law is here to help. Contact us at https://bit.ly/3e17fTy today.

COVID-19 presents unique challenges to separated parents in Canada. This week's blog explores how Coronavirus impacts parenting agreements, and how you can make sure your child's needs come first when navigating this new landscape. It's crucial that you and your child's parent have a contingency plan and reevaluate your arrangement if any of the following apply:

One parent has entered into self-isolation after coming into contact with an infected party;

One parent becomes infected with COVID-19;

One parent lives with older or immunocompromised family members;

If either parent (or anyone in the household) is a front line medical worker;

Are you considering adoption?

If you are thinking about adoption or have already started the process of adoption but are feeling lost, then get in touch today. Call us on 604-734-7911 or send us a message!

There are many ways to adopt, however, the four main types of adoption in BC are adopting a relative, adopting from foster care, adopting a local child and adopting internationally.

It's natural for children to become angry or hurt by parental separation. Most children feel that the separation is their fault and may lash out occasionally as a result.

That being said, here are some telltale signs that a child may have become alienated from his or her parent.

Visit http://bit.ly/parentalalienationwfl to learn more.

Pensions. Under the BC Family Law Act, benefits in a pension plan are family property. This means that when you separate, you and your spouse are entitled to a share of the pension benefits that either of you built up while you were living together. But dividing pension benefits can be complicated.

Most parents who split up or get divorced want what's best for their children, which generally means spending time with both parents.

In certain cases, however, custody becomes the central conflict in the separation. Such high-conflict cases give rise to the possibility of parental alienation syndrome (PAS), whereby the child is pressured to take sides.

We at Westside Family Law have decades of experience handling family disputes of all kinds, including ones with high emotion and conflict - contact us today so we can help http://bit.ly/contactwfl

Contested custody situations can be emotionally taxing on everyone. Our lawyers will seek the assistance of qualified, neutral experts to help with your case, such as child psychologists or therapists. Their testimonies and insights can not only help you with your case, but also protect the child's best interests as well.

Rest assured that we will do what we can to protect the children you love. Visit http://bit.ly/parentalalienationwfl to learn more.

If you split up, the law expects you to divide family assets (and any appreciation on excluded assets) fairly in your separation agreement, just like married couples who divorce.

You may also qualify for spousal support if you make a claim within a certain time frame, and you could seek inheritance if your partner dies without a will or clear estate plan.

Are you in a Common Law relationship and unsure of your rights if you were to separate?

Visit http://bit.ly/commonlawwfl to learn more or send us a message today to arrange your free consultation.

Essentially, it means that people who live in a "marriage-like" relationship for at least two years will be considered spouses in terms of property and, in some cases, spousal support.

The law isn't clear on the exact parameters of what marriage-like means. In some ways, this benefits couples because it allows for flexibility, since every couple's relationship will be different. In other ways, however, this can cause confusion and, in some cases, expensive legal battles over the division or inheritance of property and assets.

British Columbia was one of the first provinces in the country to recognize that families come in all shapes and sizes.

As such, British Columbia’s family laws include provisions for couples who live together, but are not officially married, which has become increasingly more common.

Have any questions about the Custody and Access Reports process? Click the link below to learn more.

At Westside, we’ve helped countless clients prepare for this. Contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you!

westsidefamilylaw.ca A Custody and Access Report is a document created by a professional that offers a recommendation regarding the best parenting arrangement for a child or children. In this blog, we discuss how the process works.

Custody and Access Reports (also known as Section 211 reports) are detailed reports from a professional such as a social worker or a counsellor in regards to a child.

These professionals thoroughly examine the family relationship and recommend what they think are the best parenting arrangements for the child.

S.211 of the BC Family Law Act authorizes these reports, hence why they are called S.211 reports.

westsidefamilylaw.ca In last week’s blog, we spoke about the legal side of IVF treatment. This blog threw up some interesting side questions. Questions like how exactly is parentage determined in British Columbia?

In a collaborative divorce you and your spouse agree to participate in your own negotiated settlement process, assisted by collaborative law lawyers who are specifically trained and experienced in helping you reach an agreement.

If you cannot reach a settlement with your lawyers, you both must find new lawyers to take your case to Court.

Our lawyers are highly skilled at helping families find not just a resolution, but the right resolution for their family's needs.
