Helping Parents Be Parents
Our lawyer can help you discuss a number of matters involving your children, including:
- Custody: Also referred to as guardianship, custody refers to who lives with the children and has the privilege and responsibility of making major decisions on their behalf.
- Access: Also called contact, this involves the time spent with the children by the parent who does not usually live with them. British Columbia’s legal system encourages the idea of protecting the children’s relationship with both parents. We can help you do that, or work with you if you are in one of the rare situations in which generous access is not advisable.
- Support: Your children’s financial needs are important. We will help you work out support for them that is fair and reasonable.
- Long-Distance and International Issues: All child-related issues can become more complex if the parents live far apart or in different countries. We will discuss how custody, visitation and support can be affected by long distances.
