Horne Coupar LLP has a team of lawyers who practice exclusively family law. We have the expertise to represent clients in all aspects of family law including divorce, division of property, spousal support, child support, separation agreements, and cohabitation/prenuptial/postnuptial agreements. This means that we can assist you if you are entering a new relationship and want to make arrangements for future division of property, parenting arrangements, and support, or if you are separating or divorcing and require assistance resolving your property, support, and parenting arrangements.

Our family law lawyers appreciate that there is not a “one size fits all” approach to family law and that various situations require different methods of proceeding. We are skilled at resolving your family law matter through alternative dispute resolution such as negotiation, mediation, and/or arbitration, or advancing your case through either the Provincial or Supreme Court of British Columbia. Regardless of the avenue pursued, Horne Coupar LLP’s family law lawyers will work with you to de-escalate any conflict and to help you reach a resolution in your case.

Family law is often intertwined with other legal issues such as estate matters, corporate law, and real estate law. Horne Coupar LLP also provides these services to clients and our team will work together to ensure that all of your legal matters are addressed in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Brown Henderson Melbye is a full-service family law firm based in Victoria with a rich history of experience and innovation in British Columbia and beyond. Trudi Brown QC literally wrote the book on Family Law in BC, British Columbia Family Law Practice, with Madam Justice Huddart and she, Jane Henderson QC, and Kay Melbye as the firm’s namesakes have all been a part of the evolution of family law in various ways since Trudi first began practicing law Victoria more than 40 years ago.

The origins of Brown Henderson Melbye date to 1985 when Trudi Brown QC and Jane Henderson QC joined forces with Deborah Acheson and Judith Kay and formed Brown Acheson Henderson & Kay, affectionately known around town by the colourful nickname “the Broads on Broad Street”. From the beginning, Trudi and Jane concentrated their practices on issues affecting children, families, and elders, and have made significant contributions to the way that family law is practiced in British Columbia.
