FAMILY LAW SERVICES
SEPARATION AND DIVORCE
Separation and divorce often involves several factors and issues and those factors and issues can vary wildly. We have experience in finding effective and efficient solutions in all manners of divorce and separation situations, including adult interdependent relationships. While we will give our best efforts to find an out of court settlement, we will diligently stand up for your rights in Court if the need arises.
CHILD CUSTODY, PARENTING, AND ACCESS
We provide practical legal advice aimed at protecting the best interests of your children. At Proskiw Law, you will receive expert, passionate legal support that zeroes in on effectively resolving issues of custody, parenting, and access following your separation. We provide you with options for resolving your dispute and have experience providing advice in a vast array of custody, parenting, and access scenarios.
The Federal Child Support Guidelines help determine the quantum of child support. However, disagreements with the guidelines do occur and we can help with any aspect involving child support, including varying a child support order and dealing with retroactive child support.
Entitlement to spousal support is often a contentious and confusing issue for a separating couple. We are here to help you understand your rights, provide you with options, and help you come to an equitable agreement with your former partner or advocate passionately for your rights in Court.
Understanding the true financial positions of both sides in a family law dispute where property and assets are in issue is essential in reaching an equitable agreement. We work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the portion of property and assets to which you are entitled.
PRENUPTIAL AND COHABITATION AGREEMENTS
Consider a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement if you desire the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you have an agreement in place regarding your legal interests. Obtaining a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement may be in your best interest if you are considering marriage or if you are involved in an adult interdependent relationship. We have the experience required to advise as to whether the agreement is well-suited towards your situation and we have the experience required to ensure that your interests are protected.
VARYING OR CHANGING YOUR COURT ORDER OR DIVORCE JUDGMENT
Your life is susceptible to change and this may necessitate a change in your Court Order or Divorce Judgment. We can help you in all aspects of varying or changing your Court Order or Divorce Judgment.
Proskiw Law provides counsel in all areas of family law, including, but not limited to, adoptions, grandparent rights, and paternity issues. Do you have a non-family law legal issue? We may be able to help. Please give us a call at 780-665-4944 to book your free 30 minute consult.
