Kelowna continues to be one of the fastest-growing cities in Canada, according to census numbers released in early 2017. For those who live in the Okanagan, this likely comes as no surprise. Warm summers, glorious scenery, affordable housing, and short commutes – not to mention widespread job opportunities –make Kelowna a highly desirable place to put down roots.
Families are key to Kelowna’s growth.
As such, they need and deserve local resources that help them flourish alongside their community. Even families that are experiencing separation and divorce have the opportunity to thrive – so long as they are supported in a comprehensive, integrated way.
This means recognizing that separating spouses need more than just legal services. They need the support of a broader community of experts and peers to help them move forward. They also need choice about how their legal issues are solved, and by whom.
BC’s Progressive Family Law Firm
As British Columbia’s progressive family law firm, Connect understands these needs and is committed to doing family law differently:
We take a balanced approach to separation and divorce, tailoring our advice to suit your family’s unique situation.
We provide clients with options for how their services are provided, and by whom. For example, we offer “unbundled” services when an alternative to the traditional “all-or-nothing” legal retainer is called for. And, where appropriate, our Designated Paralegal is able to conduct many aspects of a family law matter (under a lawyer’s supervision) at a lower hourly rate than our lawyers charge.
We connect you with a community of support so that you are not alone as you move through and past your family law dispute. Familiar with the various local family-centered resources available in the Okanagan, we help you find the ones that fit.
Because not every task during the life of a legal file needs to be completed by a lawyer, we also provide clients with options for not only how services are provided, but also by whom. We believe in progress through change.
Given our shared values – growth, innovation, community and connection – Kelowna and Connect Family Law seem like a perfect fit. All BC families deserve choice in how their legal issues are solved and we look forward to sharing our commitment to “do law differently” with families in the Okanagan.
