Family Law

Bringing compassion, determination and practical guidance to the resolution of marital and common law problems.

Our family lawyers understand the complex legal issues involved in married and common law relationships and that helping clients successfully resolve these issues requires more than knowledge of the law. We know that clients are trusting us during a difficult time and that they need a family lawyer that listens and understands their situation.

Our goal is to bring compassion, determination and practical guidance to the resolution of these problems.

Whether the family matter involves negotiation of an agreement before marriage or plans after the dissolution of a marriage or common law relationship, the impact can be substantial. We provide a wide range of family law services and years of practical experience involving the sensitive aspects of families in transition. These include dealing with issues such as:

  • divorce
  • spousal maintenance
  • child custody, guardianship and access
  • child support
  • division of property
  • marriage and cohabitation agreements
  • separation agreements
  • enforcement of court orders and judgments
  • mediation
  • restraining orders

We counsel clients on the most efficient way to settle their family law disputes. We endeavor to resolve disputes by way of negotiated settlements and we promote the use of mediation in the appropriate circumstances. When issues cannot be resolved through negotiation, we will protect your rights and seek a fair solution through courtroom proceedings. Our lawyers are experienced in trial work, and have appeared in all levels of Court in British Columbia on family law matters.

Our family lawyers also draw on the knowledge of other firm lawyers with a variety of special skills to provide comprehensive advice and guide our clients safely through complex family matters, disputes and litigation

We can assist you. Please do not hesitate to contact one of our family lawyers to schedule a one hour confidential consultation.

Testimonials

Constance S.

I just want to say that being in a stressful situation I found such great service and help from this law firm. I thank Monica for everything she did for me and relieving so much doubt and stress from this separation that I have gone through. Everything was explained to me in terms I could understand and in a very professional way. Thank you again.

No one wants to find themselves embroiled in a nasty custody battle. But, if you do, you could do no better than Leneigh Bosdet. She is a consummate professional, who made me feel at ease with the process during a very stressful time. I was always kept informed regarding where I stood, and things moved as swiftly as they could. Always ready to collaborate, but ready to throw down if necessary - if I had to do it all over again, I would pick Ms. Bosdet every time.

When I was looking for a lawyer, my brother suggested Pushor Mitchell. So I checked out the website and looked at the lawyers biography's and chose two lawyers that had strong experience and specialized in family law. Ms. Monica McParland picked up my phone call and I spoke to her immediately. Ms. McParland asked me the questions required to make me feel at ease to explain my situation. Ms. McParland was professional and friendly and I knew I'd like to meet with her. My meeting with Ms. McParland was professional with clear communication on issues and all my questions were answered and I felt very comfortable to be myself with Ms. McParland and felt I would be taken care of. Ms. McParland is very professional as well as confident, informative, efficient and personable and my experience with her has been positive. I would most definitely and have already expressed to others that Ms. McParland is the right choice.

I was looking for a lawyer that was well experienced in family law and In my search I came across Monica McParland’s Article “Do I Need a Prenup? Cohabitation and Marriage Agreements in British Columbia.” I read the article and I decided to contact Monica to set up an appointment. Monica was more than willing to accommodate my needs and was very professional. I felt comfortable explain to Monica my thoughts about getting a cohabitation agreement and she was very helpful in giving me a lot of knowledge on the topic. Monica is very friendly and easy to deal with she was able to accommodate my schedule more than once to discuss and update me on what was going on, and she was very patient in allowing me to gather the required information I needed to complete my agreement and never pushed me to making a quick decision. Highly recommend anyone to use her services for their legal needs.
