We Are Dedicated to Helping You Protect What’s Yours
Family Law covers issues including custody, child and spousal support, division of assets, divorce, restraining orders related to common law and or marriage. Our firm has extensive experience in these areas to provide the necessary advice and representation to assist you either by negotiation or litigation.
Custody relates to who has the day to day care of a child and guardianship refers to a bundle of parental rights and obligations regarding children. The Family Law Act specifies that the best interests of the child is the only factor to be considered when custody, now called parenting arrangements, are made.
Wills & Estates
Wills and estates play an important part in proper and proactive family planning. At Thomas & Associates, we have a stand-alone Wills and Estates department who can help you with planning for the future. This means you can see us for wills and estate planning even if you do not have a family law file with us.
Our exceptional legal representation is here to fight and protect your interests

… When I saw his written Factum I was gobsmacked by how persuasive the argument was, and as a result, with awe and appreciation, I read and reread the argument. … Further, Garry has put together a support team of paralegals and legal assistants that are not just very good, but a pleasure to deal with.
I can whole-heartedly recommend Garry Thomas as a trial and appeal advocate for you.
