Experienced Divorce Lawyers in Kelowna

Divorce is a difficult decision. Ending a marriage can be stressful, especially when other people are involved and external details to consider. 

Our experienced divorce lawyers in Kelowna can help if you need legal advice in family law. At The Heritage Law Group, our dedicated team of lawyers can explain your rights and options and help you to make informed decisions. 

Once you have determined the grounds of divorce, you can file for separation. After one year of mandatory separation, you can obtain a divorce. Our professional divorce lawyers are here to ensure you have the proper support for legal advice during this process.

SEPARATION IS SERIOUS

If changing the relationship for the better is impossible, do you separate?

This decision should not be made lightly, as many avenues exist to resolve the problem, including relationship counselling.

THINKING IT THROUGH

The worries and questions you face are not uncommon:

“Do I have enough money to survive on my own?”
“Can I make it through the difficulties of a separation?”
“What about the children?”
“What are the legal steps required to separate?”
“What happens to our joint possessions?”
