Family Law

All of our family lawyers are experienced in family court, mediation, collaborative family law and arbitration. Protecting your legal rights and making decisions that are in the best interests of your family are the top priorities for our lawyers and staff. Our lawyers have a record of success in family court and in reaching attractive divorce settlements*. We are also available for legal coaching/unbundled family law services if you choose to represent yourself in court.

We understand family law

Crossroads Law provides litigation services, mediation, and alternative dispute resolution in every area of family law including:

Child Custody, Access and Parenting Time

The primary factor in custody or parenting time is what is in the best interests of the children. The court is not going to give consideration to the needs or preferences of the parents.

Child Support

Child support is money paid by one parent to the other for the support of the children. The amount of child support to be paid depends on the incomes of the parties, the number of children, and the parenting arrangements in place.

Child Support Calculator


Legal coaching or unbundled family law services provide a more affordable alternative to hiring a family lawyer. Rather than having a family lawyer go to court for you, you represent yourself in divorce court and a family lawyer works for you in the background helping you draft legal documents, giving you advice and preparing you for court or family law mediation.

Cohabitation and Prenuptial Agreements

When entering a new relationship it is common for people to have concerns about how to protect their assets. One way that this can be done is through a cohabitation or prenuptial agreement.

Divorce and Separation

Spouses in Canada can get divorced if they have been separated for one year, if there has been adultery or, if there has been physical or mental cruelty.

Estate Planning

A comprehensive estate plan includes having a valid Will in place, a Power of Attorney and a Representation Agreement/ Personal Directive.

Fertility Law

Crossroads Law Vancouver is excited to be able to provide surrogacy agreements and compassionate legal assistance in the area of fertility law. For intended parents, Crossroads Law Vancouver will help you evaluate your options and protect your legal interests.

High Net-Worth Separation

High net-worth cases provide a unique set of challenges that require family law lawyers who are experienced in this area.

Matrimonial Property Division and Family Property Division

Splitting up the assets and debts after separation can be one a most confusing things for separating spouses.

Spousal Support

Spousal support, or alimony, is money paid by one spouse to the other to help them meet their needs or to compensate them for sacrificing their own career or financial well-being during the relationship.

What our clients are saying about us

I really appreciated Marcus' approach to my file. He was always the voice of reason and I believe that his sound and timely advice led to the best possible outcome for me. I appreciated his ability to cut through the nonsense and focus on the important issues while having empathy for the whole family. It was clear that he had my family's best interest at heart.

Marcus was a strong and knowledgeable resource that kept me well informed throughout the process. Something I feel is very valuable in any lawyer is to minimize surprises and provide transparency from the very start. Marcus and his team did this for me and made me feel a valuable and respected client. I would recommend Marcus to anyone seeking legal advice especially when it comes to the divorce process. His honest and trustworthy personality helped me feel comfortable through an otherwise uncomfortable time of my life. My son and I are forever grateful for all you have done Because of your hard work, our lives are better and you have helped secure my son's future. Thank you is not enough to express my gratitude.

Marcus is an extremely knowledgeable lawyer and I was glad to have him guide me through the entire experience. He gave me honest, thoughtful feedback on how to successfully navigate the process and you can tell that he has his clients' best interest at heart. I owe him a debt of gratitude for all that he's done for me.

Marcus has a great way of distilling the important, valuable, and nascent points out of my ramblings. During mediation he was aggressive when it was needed, and he was calculating/strategic/defensive when that was needed. He is my voice of reason and he's got my back (even if that means telling me to rewrite that scathing email I typed in a fit of rage). I trust Marcus with my family law issues and I will remain his client for as long as I have to deal with my ex. Thank you, Marcus, for being my champion and my guide when I needed it the most.

legal billing

We understand that many people are concerned about legal fees. Therefore, our billing practices are responsive to the needs of our clients. That’s why we offer flat rate fees for many of our services including prenuptial/marriage agreements ($2899), divorces ($999) and separation agreements ($1999)**. It is also possible for some family law and divorce cases to be taken on under contingency agreements where we don’t get paid unless you get paid. 

We also understand that many people who are going through a separation or divorce would prefer to represent themselves in court in order to cut down on costs, but they still want legal coaching to assist them in the background. This is why our family lawyers and paralegals provide unbundled family law services and legal coaching so you can get the help you need when you need it. This can be an effective way to represent yourself in family court with affordable legal assistance in the background. 

**flat rates are for uncontested matters only and may be subject to increases if the file becomes contested.
