When a relationship ends, various issues can arise including divorce, separation, parenting plans, decision-making and parenting time arrangements, child support, spousal support and the division of family property. We can help you address these issues via a negotiated agreement, or by advocating on your behalf before the court or a mediator/arbitrator. In all we do, we put the needs of your children first.
FAMILY LAW ISSUES
We understand and regularly assist non-traditional families with all of their family law needs. Whether you are looking for assistance with assisted reproduction, adoption, or experiencing separation or divorce, we can work with you to meet your unique needs as peacefully and efficiently as possible.
Whether you are considering adopting a child from a Society or an adoption agency, or seeking to have the legal status of your children or the children in a blended family secured, we can assist you to expand and secure the rights of parenthood. In all we do, we put the needs of your children first.
Many families prefer to have their issues addressed outside of a court. A neutral mediator can assist families to narrow the differences between them and often reach an outcome that is perfectly tailored to meet their specific families' needs. Where mediation fails to resolve all issues, an arbitrator can make decisions that bring closure for parties and their children.
We work with families to assist and represent them during mediation/arbitration processes.
Moreover, Robyn Switzer is an experienced and accredited family law mediator and arbitrator. She offers a fair and supportive process that assists families to reach a resolution of their differences.
We regularly appear at all levels of court on Child Protection matters. When a Children's Aid Society becomes involved with your family, emotions can run high. We will advocate on your behalf with the Society and at court to ensure that your children's wellbeing is the top priority.
