Child Custody and Access
Child Custody and Access involves a parents ability to spend time with their children and control the decisions made regarding their child’s care. Whether it’s through negotiation or involving the courts, we can help you to find a solution that’s in the best interests of your children.
When a child lives primarily with one parent, the other parent is responsible for making payments to assist in the child’s care. We can help make sure your children get the financial support they are entitled to.
Spousal Support is intended to assist spouses in maintaining their lifestyles and address any hardships that may have been endured during the relationship. At Kith & Kin we can assess your entitlement to Spousal Support and work hard to ensure you get what you deserve.
Parenting Agreements are used by parents who, to limit disputes and their impact on children, wish to make decisions regarding how their children will be cared for.
Cohabitation Agreements are used by people who live together and want to make plans regarding their financial relationship. We can prepare a cohabitation agreement that can minimize the difficulties and stress you’ll face in the event of separation.
Often referred to as a “Prenuptial Agreement” or “PreNup,” Marriage Contracts are an effective way for a couple to make decisions regarding a number of issues in the event they eventually separate. A carefully drafted Marriage Contract can save a lot of the time, stress, and cost, associated with a divorce.
Independent Legal Advice
If your spouse or partner has had a cohabitation agreement or marriage contract prepared by another lawyer it’s important that you seek independent advice before signing it. We can help you fully understand your rights and what it is that you’re agreeing to.
