Vancouver Family Lawyers

Our team of family lawyers will help you get through your separation as painlessly as possible.

Whether you are at the beginning, middle or end of a separation process, you are facing difficult decisions that will affect your future. These concerns are often complex and emotionally charged. Without an experienced family lawyer, you may not be able to protect yourself and your family in the areas of conflict or uncertainty that can arise. Financial issues, care of children and relocation issues often reach a crisis at the same time but early protective measures can make the difference between understanding and controlling the process and feeling overwhelmed by the tasks at hand. Divorce is undeniably stressful but we can help.

At Onyx Law Group in Vancouver, we represent clients who are facing a broad range of divorce and family law concerns. Our lawyers are able to assist you in even the most high-conflict or complex family law matters.

Tailored Legal Solutions for Complex Family Matters

Just as your family is like no other family, your solution will be different than any other case. Our lawyers will work with you to craft the best result possible in your circumstances so that you can move forward in your life knowing that you did all you could to know and assert your rights in a very challenging situation.


Asset Division
Our lawyers are able to bring a team together to coordinate all aspects of a business and property valuation. It is important for you to have the right professionals involved from the beginning as asset division can be complex. It is only through determining what the parties own separately and together that a fair result can be achieved.
If you need a divorce order as part of your family law solutions, we can help. This is one of the last matters to be dealt with after a relationship breakdown, if it is even necessary at all. Most often, other pressing issues require immediate attention such as financial protection and arrangements relating to children.
Child Support
The matter of child support is a key facet in ensuring the continuity of your child’s social, educational and recreational pursuits. We will ensure that you know your child’s rights to financial support and that they are protected to the best of our ability.
Spousal Support
We have extensive experience in working with the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines and will give you clear and understandable advice about how spousal support will apply to your post separation life.
Co-Parenting Responsibilities
We are passionate about protecting children from the negative effects of divorce as best we can and will work with child specialists, doctors and counsellors to ensure that your voice is heard and that your child’s voice is heard in this very emotional process.
Premarital and Cohabitation Agreements
We can help you craft a document that respectfully crystallizes your future rights and obligations. It is important to draw on legal expertise to prepare an agreement so that it has the best chance of being upheld in the future.
