Family Law

Boughton Law’s Family Law Practice keeps yours and your family’s interests at heart during difficult legal matters. From separations to prenups, we take a tailored approach that walks you through the process and informs you of your options at each juncture.

Legal issues can arise at any stage of a relationship, and that’s why it’s important to have a lawyer who is well-versed in family law, considerate, and understands your unique situation. Family is close to our hearts, which is why we know that if things turn sour, it can be challenging and difficult to manage legal proceedings.

Boughton Law’s lawyers take a different approach, one that focuses on specialized solutions that place your interests and the wellbeing of your family at the centre. We don’t believe that one size fits all, and we work with other lawyers on our team to craft a comprehensive plan based on your needs. We’ll always explain what legal options you have at every step including ways to keep your matter out of court, wherever possible.

For separation and divorce, our team will advise you on how best to structure your living situation, finances, and parenting arrangements, and how to go about determining support payments and the division of your assets. Even if you aren’t at the point of separation, we can still give you practical advice on preventative measures that you can take to protect your interests.

We also help clients minimize risk, preserve wealth, and maintain peace of mind by preparing marriage or cohabitation agreements (prenups).

In all cases, you can expect to be served by diligent, knowledgeable, and respectful lawyers with extensive experience in family law, litigation, and alternative dispute resolution (mediation, arbitration, collaborative law).

Boughton Law is a part of Meritas®, a global alliance of independent, full service law firms. With access to firms operating in over 230 markets worldwide, we can draw upon the expertise of trusted foreign legal advisors and even provide referrals if needed.

  • Flexible Services

    We realize that hiring a lawyer to handle all aspects of a family matter may not be financially feasible for everyone, which is why we offer limited scope or “unbundled” legal services to provide cost-effective solutions to your legal problem. “Unbundled” legal services means that we separate tasks requiring our assistance from those you can do yourself. This helps to keep costs down while still giving you access to Boughton Law’s expertise and counsel. An example of this might be hiring a lawyer just to help you prepare court documents or coaching you on how to present your case. Our limited scope services can be tailored to specific situations and budgets. Just ask!
