Primary Caregiver Case
Description: Our client (Dad) wanted to obtain an order for shared parenting. The mom had been restricted due to allegations of substance abuse. The child had been wrongfully withheld in another province by the opposing party. The opposing party had also made unfounded allegations of sexual assault of our client.
Result: We secured the return of the child from the opposing party and represented our client both on the criminal and family law side. Sexual assault charges were dropped and the client has now been the primary caregiver for the children for several years.
Child Custody Access, Matrimonial Property, and Restraining Order Case
Description: Opposing party (Mom) obtained an order for sole custody, day to day care of the children, exclusive possession of the matrimonial home and a restraining order against our client (Dad).
Result: Successful litigation in achieving our client’s stated objectives. Negotiated and modified the order for exclusive possession of the matrimonial home to allow our client (Dad) to exercise some or all of his access with the children, unsupervised at the matrimonial home and setting aside the restraining order.

How Can We Help You?
DIVORCE OR SEPARATION
Are you facing a divorce and don’t know where to turn? Our team of experienced Edmonton divorce lawyers at Spectrum Family Law can provide you with the personal guidance you need during this difficult time.
CHILD CUSTODY—DECISION MAKING
Child custody and child access are frequently contentious issues when couples with children separate in Alberta. Deciding what’s best for a child is never easy for any parent, especially when separation usually means that the child will live most of the time with one parent.
When a child resides primarily with one parent, the other parent who pays support is called the ‘payor’. The Child Support Guidelines list a base amount for child support depending upon the income of the ‘payor’ and the number of children involved.
Separation agreements are agreements that deal with the disentanglement of ties between two parties. A separation agreement may deal with all the issues that arise from the breakdown of the relationship, including custody and guardianship of the children, parenting arrangements, child support, spousal support, division of property and debt.
Cohabitation agreements and marriage agreements (which are also sometimes called prenuptial agreements) are domestic contracts that people use to protect their interests when entering into a spousal relationship.
A spousal support lawyer from Spectrum Family Lawyers can help you and your partner set proper expectations with support and resolve differences amicably rather than through litigation — even if you are not married.
MARITAL PROPERTY DIVISION
Whether parties are married or cohabiting, a separation or divorce involves couples detaching their intertwined financial lives and separating their assets and debts.
COMMON LAW SEPARATION
Living with another person while in a relationship may give rise to legal rights and obligations, which must be dealt with upon the breakdown of the relationship. These legal issues are often similar to those experienced by married couples, but with important differences.
