All family law matters, including divorce, separation and guardianship, inevitably have a direct impact on the children involved. In Alberta, it is increasingly common for children to receive their own legal representation in matters where their welfare is at stake. The lawyers at Castle & Associates in Calgary act as legal counsel standing up for the individual and primary interests of children.
Benefits Of Legal Counsel
In cases of child welfare, many parties will claim to act in the best interests of the young people involved. Usually, this assertion is sincere. However, in the midst of legal wrangling and arguments between adults, the voice of children is often lost. A child welfare lawyer is in the unique position to be able to speak solely for the child and translate, as best as is possible, the child's unique feelings about his or her family circumstances.
At Castle & Associates, we are respected family lawyers who take on challenging legal issues. We are compassionate people, sensitive to the long-term effect a lengthy, stressful legal dispute will have on a child. In child welfare representation, we stand with our clients to be sure the choices made on their behalf properly respect their views and well-being.
