Here are some of the most common areas of practice:

Marriage and Cohabitation Agreements: Before entering into a marital or common-law relationship, individuals may choose to create agreements outlining how issues like property division and spousal support will be handled in the event of separation or divorce.


Divorce: The legal aspects of marriage dissolution is governed by the federal Divorce Act. To get a divorce in Manitoba, generally the couple must be “separate and apart” for at least one year, and one of the parties must be a resident of Manitoba for at least one year.


Child Custody and Access: When couples with children separate, determining parenting time and decision making ability (child custody) becomes crucial. The best interests of the child are paramount in these decisions.


Child Support: Child support is a financial obligation that a non-custodial parent or co-parent may be required to pay to assist with the child’s living expenses.


Spousal Support: Spousal support, also known as alimony, may be awarded to a spouse following separation or divorce in some cases.


Property Division: In the event of a marriage breakdown, assets and debts acquired during the marriage are subject to division.


Litigation: If disputes cannot be resolved through negotiation, litigation may be necessary. The procedures necessary to go through the court process depend on the issues being dealt with.
