Our divorce lawyer will help you with the following steps:
File a Notice of Family Claim (NOFC) in B.C. Supreme Court.
Serve the NOFC to the other party.
OR if you have been served with a NOFC you have 30 days to file a response and counter claim in B.C. Supreme Court.
Divorce terms surrounding property division, guardianship of children, parenting arrangements, spousal support, child support and any other issues that need to be negotiated and resolved (everything from personal items to pets).
If necessary, temporary court orders can be obtained surrounding property division, care of the children, parenting schedules, spousal support and child support.
Once the terms of the divorce have been negotiated, the terms can be documented in a separation agreement. If the parties can’t agree on the terms the matter would proceed to Trial.
Trial, where a judge hears evidence from both parties surrounding property division, parenting arrangements, spousal support and child support. Once all the evidence is heard, the judge makes an order stating the terms of the divorce.
Order for Divorce is delivered, and the divorce is completed.

It was a great privilege to have Ms. Petersen as my legal counsel. I am extremely pleased with the performance, dedication, and support I received from her. She was professional, easy to talk to, and genuinely cared about my case. She went above and beyond what was required. I would proudly recommend Ms. Petersen to anyone.

In the past I have found talking to a lawyer an intimidating experience. Talking to Andrea was easy and she listened! She made sure my husband and I understood the legal process we were entering into. She encouraged us to ask questions if we didn’t understand something she said. Working with Andrea was an excellent experience and I highly recommend her.
