North Vancouver Lawyer, Collaborative Divorce Lawyer & Mediator

Finding a family lawyer that you can trust is imperative to achieving a timely and beneficial resolution.

My Approach to Family Law

I focus on interests and preserving relationships instead of the traditional win-lose approach. My clients have access to alternative dispute resolution processes such as Collaborative Divorce, mediation and negotiation. As a result, I frequently achieve settlements without resorting to costly litigation.

I am compassionate, practical and solution-focused. My goal is to resolve disputes efficiently, cost-effectively and with minimal conflict. I empower my clients to regain control of their lives and their futures.

I advise my clients on the full range of family law issues including marriage and cohabitation agreements (also known as “pre-nuptial” agreements); separation agreements; property and debt division; child support; spousal support; parenting issues (guardianship, parenting time and custody); and divorce.

What People Say

  • Amalia Schön helped me alot during some of the darkest days of my life. I took a chance on Amalia, not knowing where to turn for help and never before finding myself in need of a Family lawyer, I did not have a clue whom to choose online.
    I found Amalia Schön online and the thing I remember most was she called herself more of a mediator in Family law than just a divorce lawyer, Amalia negotiated a fair settlement when all communications had ended and no resolution was possible on my own when my commonlaw relationship had ended very badly and abruptly. Amalia was always very professional and always responded to my queries and problems in a timely manner. Amalia Schön offered me good value, she is a quality family lawyer and mediated a fair settlement without anyone involved ending up in court.
    Amalia Schön Family Law, comes highly recommended as family mediator/lawyer by myself, I am very happy with her services and recommend her when and if you should ever need a Family lawyer!

  • There were many times during my family law case where I wanted to give up and leave this all behind me, however Amalia was a fierce advocate for me and ensured that I fought for what I deserved. She was also very responsive and ensured that things moved forward at a reasonable pace so that the matter could be resolved as quickly as possible. Her fees were very competitive and reasonable.

  • Ahhhh, how did my separation agreement go? Well is anyone's separation fun? Probably not... but as far as the legal stuff went, Amalia was a joy to work with. It's always daunting retaining a lawyer because we all know they seemingly bill by the millisecond... but Amalia has time efficiency and friendliness as well as expertise and professionalism at the forefront of her service offering. I really appreciated Amalia getting my separation agreement done... very thoroughly and as seamlessly as possible.

  • I approached Amalia Schon to deal with a really complex case. Over the years, I have interacted with many lawyers over various family and business issues. By far she has been the most personable and cooperative lawyer that I have encountered. At every time, she tried to find solutions that in the long run reduced litigation and the costs associated with them. I am highly satisfied with her services and professionalism and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is going through a divorce or separation. You not only will save money, but you also will feel much better from having a lawyer who takes into consideration the human side.
