At Kimball Law, we have extensive experience in family and divorce law. We are aware of the emotional trauma that can accompany these legal problems. We will review with you in strict confidence your situation and full details of your family circumstances and financial affairs. We are usually able to provide you with options by the end of the first consultation.
We handle both contested and uncontested divorce. We deal with other issues that may arise as a result of a divorce such as spousal support, child support, custody/access, division of property or change of name.
At Kimball Law, we handle all aspects of custody and access whether it is an initial application for custody of your children or a variation of an existing Court Order.
Maintenance payments can be in the form of child and/or spousal payments. We can help you determine what you are entitled to or are required to pay. Spousal support payments also have tax implications, so find out how paying spousal support or receiving spousal support can affect your taxes. A change in circumstance could warrant a variation in a spousal support or child support order. We can help you vary an existing order to better reflect your current situation.
Separation Agreements or Marriage Contracts
A well drafted marriage contract or separation agreement can save a lot of time and expense. Have your rights and liabilities set out clearly. We can draft a marriage contract or separation agreement that is in your best interest to help you avoid any hassle in the future.
Not all family law matters are upsetting and some can be very exciting such as the adoption of a child. We can help your adoption run smoothly and get the necessary paperwork processed as quickly and easily as possible.
Collaborative Family Law
Heidi Foshay Kimball is a member of the Association of the Collaborative Family Law Lawyers of Nova Scotia. Collaborative family law is especially designed for people facing separation or divorce. The goal of collaborative family law is to settle all issues between parties without going to court. The clients have more control over the process and lengthy legal battles are avoided. Any conflicts are resolved through negotiation between both parties and their lawyers. For more information on collaborative family law, visit www.collaborativefamilylawyers.ca.
