Richter Trial Lawyers are Vancouver divorce lawyers there to help resolve your property division, spousal support and child support claims during divorce. The emotion, fear and financial uncertainty of divorce can be a little overwhelming without family law information. A good divorce lawyer will help with this overwhelming feeling by showing you what the Family Law Act says about division of assets, debts and property. A good family lawyer will also help by explaining to you what the Divorce Act and Family Law Act says about entitlement, duration and amount of spousal support (Spousal Support Guidelines) and child support (Federal Child Support Guidelines). We will walk you through the all important financial disclosure which applies equally to both sides of a family law dispute.
Good divorce lawyers in Vancouver try to develop the most appropriate strategy to resolve a family law dispute. The courts make a concerted effort to lessen the conflict inherent in divorce and family law. A good divorce lawyer will commence a family claim, prepare a financial statement and book a judicial case conference. A judicial case conference is often a helpful step toward eventual settlement by way of agreement, consent order or minutes of settlement. While sometimes unavoidable, court is a last resort for a family lawyer. The statistics confirm that only a small minority of family law cases end in court.
