Family Law & Civil Litigation
There are few things as stressful as when personal relationships breakdown. At Nanua & Ioffe Lawyers we strive to help you with this stressful period in your life. We will ensure that your rights are protected and assist you throughout the legal process. Our lawyers have extensive experience in all matters dealing with divorce, property equalization, matrimonial home equalization, common-law break-ups, separation and child support & access.
Family law is not just limited to those who are married. Even if you were never legally married, you may have legal rights and obligations that we can assist you with. We also have significant experience addressing the unique issues related to same-sex couples.
Our lawyers can also help in the other aspects of your family. We can assist you with adoptions, co-habitation agreements and pre-nuptial agreements.
We understand the importance of alternate dispute resolution (ex. arbitration or mediation) and we will assist you in helping resolve your disputes using these measures should you wish.
This is one of the broadest practice areas in our firm. If you feel that another party has wronged you, you may have legal recourse. This could be a breach of contract, a negligent act, or the destruction of your property. If you feel that somebody owes you for a wrong they committed contact one of our lawyers.
Going to court is expensive, so our firm encourages our clients to utilize our skills in alternative dispute resolution. Our team has provided clients with competent representation before arbitrators, in mediation and through traditional negotiations.
We encourage you to consult one of our lawyers to determine if you have legal recourse. We can assist as you prepare a lawsuit, or we can help you defend against one!
