Family Law

Family law addresses family related matters and domestic relations including: marriage and common law relationships; adoption and surrogacy; and guardianship. Conflict in these areas often result in divorce and separation, as well as contests over spousal and child support, division of family assets, and child custody and access. Protracted conflict can often be avoided by coming to agreement before the end of a relationship and by engaging in a dispute resolution process afterward. The experienced lawyers at DuMoulin Boskovich can help you make the best decisions for you and your family.

Divorce and Separation

The breakdown of a relationship is difficult and confusing. At DuMoulin Boskovich we see our role as both that of a guide and advocate helping you to understand what is happening during this critical time and giving you the advice you need to explore your options and make informed decisions about how you want to move forward.

Our lawyers regularly assist clients with advice and representation in all aspects of the divorce process. We assist in:

  • Attaining court orders
  • Negotiating settlements
  • Drafting agreements
  • Disclosing financial information
  • Valuating assets such as companies and pensions

Whether you are the one seeking a divorce or you have just been served with legal documents by your spouse, we can help guide you through the process.

Spousal and Child Support

Lawyers at Dumoulin Boskovich advocate for equitable division of property and allocation of future support for our clients involved in separation and divorce proceedings. In British Columbia, each party is entitled to one-half of the property acquired during the relationship, subject to the right of the Court to redistribute those assets pursuant to the Family Law Act. Also, both spouses have a right to seek spousal support. Support orders are made in the discretion of the Court where need and ability to pay are shown. Support can be compensatory or non-compensatory. However it is the obligation of everyone to be self-supporting to the best of their ability. If there are children of the relationship, child support will also be calculated.

There are guidelines in place to aid in determining entitlement to support. The Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines are used to assist in determining what support each person is entitled to. The Child Support Guidelines regulate the amount of maintenance to be paid. Also, the BC Family Maintenance Enforcement Program enforces maintenance orders and agreements for child and spousal support.

Agreements

We help clients negotiate and draft legal contracts that finalize many important issues while they are still in committed relationships. We can assist in drafting relationship agreements or separation agreements.

A relationship agreement enables people who wish to live with each other to clarify their expectations regarding their finances and property during their relationship and what will happen should the parties separate or should a party die. Such agreements are legally binding and can include:

  • Cohabitation agreements
  • Family agreements
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Postnuptial agreements
  • Adult Interdependent Relationship Agreements

When you and your spouse are preparing to end your relationship, a separation agreement is one way that spouses can agree to resolve many of their issues in the divorce process through mutual agreement without the need for either party to appear before the courts. A separation agreement can be done in anticipation of separation and at any time after the separation process has begun. Such an agreement is a good alternative to litigation and a way for the parties to achieve an optimum result for themselves with the upmost control of the process. A legal separation agreement will protect you during a separation in case your spouse fails to live up to their obligations – the court will be able to enforce the agreements that each of you made. We will ensure you fully understand your options, obligations, and rights under these agreements.
