Family Law

Family law

DLA Piper's Family Law group advises and represents ‎individuals in marriages and common-law and ‎same-sex ‎relationships on all aspects of Family Law.‎
Our group has extensive experience with complex financial issues and providing ‎support through other ‎groups within our firm to address tax, real estate, corporate and ‎wills, trusts and estate matters.‎



In all cases, we adopt a solution-oriented approach, and where suitable, we ‎recommend ‎mediation to resolve issues amicably while avoiding costly and stressful ‎litigation. Our ‎experience includes:‎

  • Divorce and separation agreements
  • Property division and spousal maintenance
  • Marriage agreements and cohabitation agreements
  • Child-related matters, such as custody guardianship, access and child support, and inter-‎‎jurisdictional issues

Our group's primary focus is on financial issues relating to marriage breakdown, ‎including:‎

  • Business valuation and taxation
  • Pension division
  • Multi-jurisdictional issues and conflicts of laws
  • Investigative and forensic accounting issues
  • Shareholders' remedies
  • Trusts
