Our Family Law Group earns high praise from both our colleagues and the courts for the consistent quality of results we achieve on behalf of our clients. The diversity and depth of our lawyers enables us to effectively serve our clients in a wide variety of family law matters ranging from simple to complex.
Basman Smith’s highly regarded and award winning Family Law Group offers practical and professional advice relating to all aspects of family law, including division of property, child and spousal support issues and custody and access concerns.
We are responsive to our clients’ diverse, complex and sensitive needs. We ensure our clients are aware of the options available in their particular circumstances and have the required information and support to make informed decisions. We also have access to other practice groups in our firm to assist clients with the tax, real estate, business and estate issues that arise on the dissolution of a relationship.
Our group has developed a high level of skill in advocacy at all levels of courts, including the Court of Appeal.
We make it our mandate to keep informed of changes in the law and we take pride in the fact that members of our group are frequently called upon to teach law and related issues to other lawyers, law students and the public.
Our wealth of experience is invaluable in helping clients to negotiate and draft separation agreements, marriage contracts and co-habitation agreements both for opposite sex and same sex couples.
We offer collaborative law, mediation and arbitration services for those clients wanting an alternative to court to resolve the problems arising from a relationship breakdown.
