Taxation on property division in divorce

There are a number of complicated factors to take into consideration when a couple decides to divorce. Of these, property division can be among the most contentious. It can be complicated to determine how settlements are taxed, but here in British Columbia, a strict set of rules must be adhered to in order to avoid tax trouble farther down the line.

Family law issues: Preparation for divorce key to success

January is widely regarded as "divorce month" by attorneys practicing in this field of law. However, many British Columbia residents considering divorce at the beginning of the year may fall short in the preparedness department, a move some family law commentators believe could lead to a longer, more contentious process. This is why, they say, it is important for couples to secure the appropriate support in preparing for a divorce. 

Using family law to protect business assets in divorce

In the modern era, many husband/wife teams jointly own and run businesses together. So what happens when that relationship ends in divorce? Thankfully for British Columbia residents, family law offers options for couples who are ending life and business partnerships. 

Child support an important part of family law

One of the most challenging and sometimes contentious parts of a divorce is child custody and, by extension, child support. British Columbia residents will doubtless agree that minor children run the risk of taking the brunt of the emotional fallout of a divorce, which is partly why both parents have a legal obligation to ensure child support is provided. This part of family law can be complicated, which is why the support of divorce lawyers can be so valuable to divorcing families with children.
