My Children

Separation and divorce can be tough on your children. Younger children often feel a sense of responsibility for the split. Child custody arrangements whether sole, joint, equal or shared parenting create new and confusing lives. Access and visitation denial and parental alienation top the list of damage done to our kids, but there are ways to help ease their pain and avoid making a difficult situation even worse.

My Money

Family law can put an unmanageable strain on your personal finances, especially if you'll be paying child support or spousal support after the Separation Agreement is signed. But with a little wisdom and planning, property division, pension equalization and income splitting can be effectively managed.
