Consult with Our Family Lawyers

Every family has unique needs when it comes to hiring legal support. At Verhaeghe Law Office, our goal is to bring every individual the customized guidance they need to protect their rights.

If you're not sure what your needs are, it's best to start the process by booking a consultation. During the meeting, we will gain an understanding of your situation and the legal guidance you are seeking. We will discuss your expectations, and what you wish the outcome to be.

Together we will come up with a strategy to get you where you wish to go. Understanding the nuances of your situation may take more than one meeting, so be patient with the process, and our team will work hard to ensure that your needs are met.

Legal Support for Various Family Matters

There are many reasons why parents and spouses may choose to seek help from a family lawyer. Here are some of the cases we have dealt with:


One of the most common reasons that people hire family lawyers is for issues surrounding divorce. Divorce can be tricky, and agreeing on the details of property and assets, as well as child and spousal support is not always amicable. A family lawyer can help protect your rights and gain you access to what you're entitled to.

Child Custody

Child custody is a sensitive subject. If you and your former partner are having difficulty coming to terms with these matters, hiring a family lawyer may be necessary. Having an attorney is crucial if you do not believe that your child's parent is financially or otherwise fit to care for your children's well-being.


Adoption can be an exciting time for any family, but the process is not always easy, and there are a series of steps that must be taken. Hiring a family lawyer can be helpful in making sure that the process is completed smoothly.


Enlisting a legal guardian for your child can be very comforting, but the process is complex. The support of a lawyer is beneficial for this process to run smoothly. We can help you work through the paperwork and ensure that the application is appropriately completed.

Transparent Pricing on Family Lawyers

We understand that hiring a family lawyer is necessary in many cases. We want to be able to support as many Edmonton families as possible, and that is why we are proud to offer our services at transparent and competitive rates.

When most people think of family law they think of divorce proceedings. While Verhaeghe Law Office does handle divorce issues in Edmonton, such as child custody, spousal support, child support, visitation rights, no fault divorces, separations, and asset allocation, we also focus on various other forms of family law as well. For instance, we can resolve issues pertaining to common law relationships, as well as civil unions and other domestic partnerships. Verhaeghe Law Office will also take on cases that concern adoption rights (e.g., same sex and foreign couples), surrogacy issues, and paternity fraud and testing. Moreover, we have settled family law matters that dealt with spousal abuse, and child abduction.

Unfortunately, while family law is a largely part of our practice, many of our clients are referrals or come to us after being with one or more law firms, looking for the personal service that we pride ourselves in giving. Learn More
