Family Law

Our lawyers take a unique and dynamic approach to family law files. We understand how complicated and sensitive family issues are, which is why we rely on various approaches to assist you. Where appropriate, we employ a mediatory approach, which we believe helps to preserve family relationships, minimize legal costs and keeps the matter moving towards resolution.
We rely on the following tools:
  • Mediation;
  • Negotiation;
  • Collaborative family law; and
  • Court (where necessary).

We also believe in working to prevent problems before they occur. By encouraging our clients to turn their minds to potential problems and solutions in advance, we are looking out for your best interests, both in the present and in the future. We do this by preparing and advising clients with regards to:


  • Marriage agreements;
  • Cohabitation agreements; and
  • Separation agreements.

Once a relationship has deteriorated to the point of separation or divorce we also deal in matters involving:


  • Division of family assets and debts;
  • Custody of Children;
  • Access to Children;
  • Guardianship issues;
  • Child Support; and
  • Spousal Support.
If you have been appointed as an executor and have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Sitka Law Group for a free consultation.
