Our lawyers are committed first and foremost to assist clients if so required, with trying to save their marriage. However, should reconciliation would not be at all possible, than clients are provided with a strong representation to facilitate the legal procedure required for a consensual separation, during the mediation process or throughout the litigation process if circumstances so necessitate.

We enjoy a good reputation in legal matters associated with child care where the best interests of the minor child are our prime consideration. The services provided also involve procedures for adoption, cases for paternity, filiation and repudiation of children whether born in marriage or outside wedlock as the case may be, as well as proceedings in connection with child's abduction.

The family law team at Tanti-Dougall & Associates, Advocates also provides services for the registration of foreign marriages and of foreign divorces.  We also provide assistance to clients in pursuance of a marriage divorce as well as in marriage nullity proceedings both before the Civil Courts and the Ecclesiastical Tribunals.
