Family Law for Dads

dad and a childIt can be heart breaking. It can be very challenging. It can be straightforward. In all cases, having a lawyer who will stand up and fight for your rights is vitally important. We will stand up and fight for your rights.

Dads often report to us there is injustice in the system. Relocation by the mother of the children is a good example.  Misdirected, manufactured and fabricated allegations of child abuse, domestic violence, substances misuse, addictions and mental health are other good examples.

In such cases having a lawyer who will stand up and fight for your rights can make all the difference. And this is why clients tell us they use the services of our firm. We fight for their rights. We use our legal knowledge and expertise to guide our clients through the family law system.
