Family Law

Introduction

At CJEM Law Office, we approach law with your family’s best interests in mind.

A divorce or separation requires a settlement of affairs. There are four ways to approach the task:

  1. Negotiation by lawyers
  2. Mediation
  3. Court processes

Through whichever process you feel will best meet your needs, we will defend your interests and seek justice.

What is the Family Law Division?

In 1994, The Queen's Bench (Family Law Division) Amendment Act established a Family Law Division, which handles all family law matters. There are judges of the Court of King's Bench appointed specifically to sit as judges of the Family Law Division. At present these judges are located in Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert.
