Relationship breakdown and divorce is exceptionally difficult and traumatic for all parties involved, particularly in the case of long lasting marriages. We understand that.
This is why the experienced Family and Divorce lawyers at Rogerson Law Group have a reputation for effectively but sympathetically guiding our clients through the legal complexities of divorce and financial matters.
Sometimes, it is difficult to look ahead – particularly where property, financial arrangements and any children are concerned. Where there are cross border issues, your case may be even more difficult for you to handle emotionally. This is why having clear and objective legal advice from specialist family lawyers makes all the difference. Where necessary, we take a robust approach to achieve the best possible outcome for clients in the most efficient way possible.

In many cases, we are able to negotiate effective settlements on behalf of our clients.
The fastest, most cost-effective way to resolve family disputes is through negotiated settlement. We will strive to negotiate a settlement on your behalf in situations where family property or matrimonial assets need to be divided. We will advocate tenaciously on your behalf to achieve the best resolution possible for you.
Where court proceedings become necessary, we will represent you and guide you through each stage of the court process.
We specialise in High Net Worth and Cross Border matters. We also assist in cases where property or assets are located in another province or country. Joseph is a very experienced Divorce Lawyer with expertise in child support, child custody issues and frequently advises clients where there are assets and/or individuals located in other jurisdictions. He works with clients, lawyers and other parties both in the United States and overseas (including Bermuda, Turks & Caicos Islands, Europe and the UK).

If you are thinking about cohabitating or getting married; or your relationship is breaking down – we can advise you on the most appropriate terms for a Domestic Contract to best protect your interests.
We recognise that each client and every case is unique. We will:
- Provide clear, sympathetic advice that gets to the heart of your case
- Ensure we focus on understanding all your objectives
- Work closely with you to tailor a solution that is best for you and your family
When spouses or partners separate, arrangements usually have to be made with regard to finances and property. Typical issues include:
- What should happen to the family home
- How family assets should be distributed
- Whether support (maintenance) should be paid by one party to the other
- What level of support is appropriate
- What should happen to a pension
- The need for a will
The law relating to financial entitlement and property division on the breakdown of a relationship is complex. However, we have years of experience advising clients on these matters, and we have the expertise to advise you on the potential outcomes based upon the facts of your case. Joseph has a formidable record in successfully negotiating settlements and achieving positive results for his clients.
Where a solution can be found without the need for costly and lengthy litigation – we will find it for you.
Hague Convention cases
International marriages where the parties are from different countries are nothing unusual today. Where international marriages break down, the problems can become complex – particularly where any children are involved. The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is an international agreement used by lawyers to help protect children.
We are experienced in Hague Convention cases. If you have any concerns about the safety and well-being of a child, contact us straightaway. For an example of our work involving the Hague Convention read here
