Our experienced mediators facilitate discussions, ensuring both parties can express their needs and concerns in a supportive environment, paving the way for amicable resolutions.

Navigating Child Support with Shim Law

Child support is a pivotal aspect of family law, designed to ensure that children’s financial needs are met following a separation or divorce. Alberta’s child support guidelines set the framework, but individual circumstances significantly influence the final arrangement. Shim Law’s family lawyers expertly navigate these guidelines, advocating for fair and equitable support payments that reflect your child’s best interests and the financial circumstances of both parents.

Child Parenting: Advocating for Your Family’s Future

Determining child custody (a.k.a. parenting issue) is often the most emotionally charged aspect of family law. Shim Law prioritizes the best interests of the child, advocating for parenting/custody arrangements that support their well-being and development. Whether negotiating shared, joint, or sole custody, our lawyers work tirelessly to ensure that the custody agreement reflects the child’s needs, the parents’ wishes, and/or the family’s unique dynamics.

Emergency Protection Orders: Immediate Assistance When You Need It

Shim Law provides swift and decisive legal action to secure these orders, offering immediate protection from harm. Our lawyers understand the urgency and sensitivity of these situations, ensuring that the legal system responds promptly to your needs.
