Legal Advice

Whether you are thinking of separating, whether the separation is recent or for a new legal issue arising after several years, I can help you explore the best solutions for you.

  • Parenting time and responsibilities
  • Partition of property, family patrimony and matrimonial regime
  • Financial responsibilities for children
  • Modification of judgments
  • Cancellation of support payments
  • Etc.

Independent legal advice is strongly recommended at various stages of the mediation process:

  • Preparation before your first appointment
  • Validation between meetings
  • Alimony and property partition calculations
  • Summary of agreements review

Please note: The roles of mediator and legal counsel are different. Although I offer both services, they cannot be offered simultaneously. If you wish to use my services in mediation please visit the page to that effect

Certain life events have a great legal implications. It is important to be well informed and to receive appropriate advice in order to avoid making mistakes:

  • Marriage and choice of matrimonial regime
  • Common-life contracts for unmarried couples
  • Assisted procreation
  • Adoption
  • Multiple parents (consultez l’article sur ce sujet)
  • Surrocacy
  • Etc.

Joint Proceedings

A judgment is sometimes necessary, for example to:

  • Obtain a divorce
  • Modify a judgment when the situation has changed
  • Get a mediation agreement homologated

When you agree on the outcome, you can assign only one lawyer to prepare the legal documents. This way, you can reduce and share the costs.

For a judgment modification, there are programs for a very economical, or even free way to proceed. To learn more about these options, see the article on Service d’aide à l’homologation (SAH).

Collaborative Law

Collaborative law is a process by which parties and their lawyers agree to negotiate together, strictly outside of court. In this way, everyone commits to resolving impasses collaboratively rather than having them decided by judges.

The main benefits of this approach having legal representation, without the stress, delays and costs of the courts. Those who participate also retain more control over their divorce or separation agreements. 

In Quebec, to properly practice collaborative law, lawyers undergo rigorous training and are members of the Groupe de droit collaboratif du Québec

If you have any questions or would like me to represent you in a collaborative law process, please communicate with me.
