Children are impacted by separation and divorce and the impact on them will usually be worse if their parents engage in conflict.
We at the Kitsilano Family Law Group encourage separating and divorcing parents to carefully consider the impact of separation and divorce on their children.
We recommend that separating and divorcing parents obtain and view the film entitled “SPLIT - Children's Journeys through Divorce” which presents the moving, enlightening and sobering views and observations of a number of children whose parents are separating or have separated. Here is a clip from this film:
If your child has been wrongfully taken to, or is wrongfully remaining in BC, there are two main legal remedies that can help you in having your child returned home.
For many of our clients, having businesses and other property in our parts of the world was a normal part of their lives. But when these individuals have a looming separation or divorce, it soon becomes clear that their separation or divorce will be quickly complicated by the possible division of these overseas businesses and properties. What can you do to get full disclosure or prevent dissipation of overseas assets? What can you do when you dispute BC's jurisdiction and want another jurisdiction to make a determination over your separation or divorce issues?
Even with the best planning, we cannot entirely avoid the challenges that are inherent to life. We can, however, make plans to weather those storms. Having a will and a representation agreement is a very practical way to “weather the storms” of life.
