Kitsilano Family Law, nestled in the heart of Vancouver’s most vibrant community, provides clients with empathetic, experienced, and knowledgeable family law assistance. Our compassion and expertise allows clients to receive the legal support they need. We are skilled in diverse methods of resolving family law disputes — including negotiation, mediation, litigation, and parenting coordination. Kitsilano Family Law is the foremost family law firm in British Columbia in the niche legal area of interjurisdictional parenting disputes, including cases involving the international removal or retention of children.
Our first preference is to assist our clients in resolving disputes through agreement, and to ultimately de-escalate any ongoing family conflict. While we have the ability and experience to handle court action efficiently and cost-effectively, we believe this should be a last resort. If children are involved, protecting the children's best interests should be the paramount consideration.
Our lawyers offer full legal representation, one-time independent legal advice, and/or "unbundled" legal services. We have multiple trained family law mediators who accept legal aid and "low bono" clients. Our staff also includes a designated paralegal and certified legal coach, and a parenting coordinator and writer of "Hear the Child" reports. We can offer services in English, French, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Serbo-Croatian. Please contact us to learn more about how we can help you.
