You may find yourself in a situation when you were previously self-represented and are now overwhelmed by the separation and divorce process. Learning how to successfully negotiate your dispute is one of the most important aspects of any separation or divorce. Our team of highly skilled Kitchener family law lawyers assist clients who wish to have legal representation during the negotiation, drafting, and final revisions of a private settlement, written agreement, or at any stage of a litigated family law proceeding.


We work with you to overcome traditional barriers to settlement by focusing on strong communication with the other party, option assessment, and working to advance and achieve optimal results that create a win-win situation for everyone.


Successful negotiations involve a principled balance for distributing joint gains that allows the parties to identify and articulate their needs and perspectives through interest-based discussions while at the same time providing creative opportunities for mutual recognition and problem-solving.
