What we do
Offered By Our Law Office
what we do
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.
