Family Law
Our family law team understands that some family matters may be emotional and disruptive, and so we seek efficient resolutions to legal situations without sacrificing an awareness of the possibilities of negotiated settlements, and litigation where necessary. We are able to assist our clients in addressing all family law-related issues, including the following:
  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Parenting Arrangements

  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support
  • Division of Property

We offer many alternatives to court to assist you to bring your matter to a resolution. This includes negotiation, collaborative family law, mediation and parenting coordination, all of which can be done by phone or video conference.












Collaborative Law
Nicole MacIsaac and Jennifer K Reid are trained, collaborative family lawyers. Nicole is also the President of the Association of Collaborative Professionals of Nova Scotia, and Jennifer K. Reid is the Treasurer. 
Collaborative law is a dispute resolution process, facilitated by trained lawyers who assist participants in resolving conflict using cooperative strategies rather than adversarial techniques. Through a series of group meetings, lawyers and participants focus on identifying underlying interests, generating solutions that meet them.  Collaborative Family Law participants agree to negotiate an agreement without going to court.
