Better

Brookshire’s team of family and divorce lawyers in Halifax can help so that you’re not at a disadvantage when it comes to settling your case. A divorce can be an emotionally overwhelming time period, and making decisions in that state may not be advantageous as it may be difficult to see things objectively.
Our experienced family lawyers will help you navigate through the complexities of family & divorce law. We will be your voice to ensure matters are resolved in your favor.
Our Halifax divorce attorneys know the breakdown of a relationship with an individual can be difficult, and the process of a divorce can take time.  We will ensure that this process is as seamless as possible so that you can focus on planning your future, while we help you negotiate the best possible outcome.

What we do

Offered By Our Law Office

what we do

Uncontested Divorces

We draft all legal documents that you need to complete an uncontested divorce in Halifax including the cover letter to the court under your signature. We do the heavy lifting. You file these completed documents, and nothing more is usually required. After this, the court takes at least three months to issue your divorce order.

Family Court Applications

Legal documents must be prepared when starting a matter with the family court. Let our Senior Trial Counsel prepare these documents for you. We can prepare these documents for you in person; on the telephone; or, during a video conference.

Family Court Affidavits

Every court hearing that you attend requires you to file a sworn statement—a document known as an “affidavit”. The affidavit usually is the most critical document generated in a court proceeding. Judges base their decisions on the evidence they receive. The affidavit you prepare is your opportunity to give the judge the evidence needed to secure a favorable decision. Give yourself a legal edge by allowing our Senior Trial Counsel to write that affidavit with you.

What the

“Pay-As-You-Go”

Payment Option

Does Not Include

Brookshire Law Office is committed to promoting “Access to Justice” for all Nova Scotians, even those unable to afford traditional legal services. Our “pay-as-you-go” payment option for legal services assists those who prefer to represent themselves rather than pay for services that are beyond the constraints imposed by their family budgets. We do not talk to judges, lawyers, or other parties. If you would like traditional legal services, we would be happy to provide you with services at our regular hourly rate.
