What police officers worry about the most during separation and divorce.
Long hours. Midnight shifts. Driving in sleet and scorching sun alike. Traffic snafus. Long periods of being on alert, alternating with short periods of intense—and volatile—activity. Random acts of malfeasance and violence. Stress. Being thrust into unpredictable situations and having to diffuse them personally. Delivering the bad news to family; their loved one is not coming home tonight. Missed hockey tournaments, school plays, music recitals, and seasonal pageants. Missed birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, and weddings. More stress. ‘Non-traditional’ holiday meals in Styrofoam takeout containers, eaten with plastic cutlery. Endless cups of coffee, some of it even good.
This is the life of a police services member, serving and protecting our citizens. We at Williams Family Law get it.
A career in policing is not easy on a relationship, whether you are married or living common-law. So, when your relationship ends, we got your back.
Police service members worry about four things when their relationship falls apart:
- When will I be able to see my children?
- How much child support and spousal support will I have to pay?
- What will happen to my pension?
- Will I still be able to have a decent quality of life after the separation or divorce?
- We will help you negotiate a fair Separation Agreement, keeping your children’s best interests foremost in mind.
You protect us. Now, let us protect you.
