Going through a divorce is an emotionally painful and uncertain time. Valerie understands and will dedicate her time and resources to securing a fair resolution to your divorce. Parenting time, spousal support and asset division can tangle up in a pile of legalese and paperwork. Valerie has the experience needed to wade through the legal terminology and intricacies of the justice system. She and her team also help with your paperwork if you are going through an uncontested divorce.
Children are particularly vulnerable when their parents are going through a divorce. Valerie will prioritize your children’s well-being when handling your case. She will help you draft an agreement that protects your children’s best interests and will fight tirelessly for you during parenting disagreements.
Adoption takes many forms and involves various legal processes. Valerie can help you grow your family through step-parent, non-family, and adult adoptions, as she has with countless others in the Lower Mainland.
Deciding to separate is a difficult decision for most couples. Valerie will provide guidance and support to help you confidently make informed decisions through collaborative divorce processes, mediation, or court. She can help you avoid common errors, so you will not get bogged down in the legal process.
A separation agreement is an essential legal contract covering any number of family law issues such as spousal support, child support, parenting time, family property, and debts. Valerie will draft a separation agreement that sets out the agreed-upon terms in terms that are clear, concise, and easy to understand.
Many laws dictate who gets what in a separation or divorce, and the average person cannot be expected to be up to date on the latest changes in the law. Valerie can use her decades of experience to streamline the process for you while ensuring you get what you are entitled to legally.
A prenuptial agreement is a sensitive topic many couples do not want to discuss before the wedding date. However, creating a prenuptial agreement can help create transparency, build trust and settle expectations on dealing with your property and assets if you ever divorce. In addition, a well-written prenuptial agreement can help prevent disputes if you separate.
Like a prenuptial agreement, a cohabitation agreement is a legally binding contract that protects you and your partner’s financial and legal interests while you live together. It also sets out each partner’s rights, responsibilities, and obligations if the relationship ends. If this type of agreement is right for you, Valerie can provide guidance and advice on how to structure it to protect your best interests.
