Family law: Understanding costs important in divorce

It is no secret that divorce can be emotionally and financially challenging for both parties. Family law issues that are a catalyst for divorce proceedings involve more than just money. Nevertheless, the process is generally more difficult for those British Columbia residents who are unprepared to deal with the financial issues that arise when a marriage ends. 

Family law: Financial mistakes to avoid in divorce

Preparing for a divorce is one of the great unspoken challenges involved in ending a marriage. However, many family law experts both here in British Columbia and elsewhere advise individuals considering divorce to prepare in advance of filing papers with a court. There are several mistakes that can be made during this period that could have long-term effects on both spouses moving forward into the divorce process. 

Family law: Misconceptions regarding divorce

The modern era has brought with it a wealth of information on every conceivable topic, thanks to the internet. However, as British Columbia residents understand, not all of this information is reliable, particularly when it pertains to family law. This is why it is so helpful to have the support of a savvy attorney when approaching divorce proceedings -- the more misinformation that can be avoided, the easier the process will become. 

Cohabitation agreements a family law option

The modern Canadian relationship can take on many different forms, not all of them a traditional marriage. For many young British Columbia residents, a rising divorce rate has led many people to eschew marriage altogether in exchange for simple cohabitation. However, it is important to note that even in a nontraditional relationship, things can get contentious if the relationship breaks down. This is why many family law experts are recommending couples consider cohabitation agreements to protect both individuals in the event the relationship should turn sour.
