Ed Bowes, LLB LLM brings over 33 years of experience to his family law practice - he handles  prenuptial agreements, divorce and mediation services EDWARD E. BOWES, LL.B. LL.M.
Barrister & Solicitor

Preferred Areas of Practice: Family-Matrimonial Law & Personal Injury Law

When facing the legal issues of family breakdown or personal injury you need someone with life experience as well as legal experience. 
I have been practicing law in these areas for 33+ years and I perform all services personally without shifting your file to a junior.


Pre-Nuptial Agreements - some comments:

There are many good reasons for obtaining a pre-nuptial agreement.  This is especially so if you are a parent and you have significant assets you may want to share with your children after they are married.  Many parents want to ensure their assets remain "in the family" even in the event of a subsequent divorce.

Without a properly drawn pre-nuptial agreement, any assets transferred to a son or daughter risk becoming "family assets" which will be subject to division upon separation or divorce. Given the rate of marriage failures today, this is something every parent will want to consider.

If you are considering marriage and you or your fiancée have significant assets (and/or children from a previous relationship) then a pre-nuptial agreement may be crucial for preserving a separation of those assets and/or the financial security of your children from any previous relationship

'Deadbolt dads' disenfranchised by bad laws , in www.canadianchristianity.com/
bc/bccn/1107/16deadbolt.html
[cited 2009.02]

[Excerpt sample] " ... OUR culture coined the term ‘deadbeat dad’, a pejorative for fathers who fail to pay child support. Recently, a new phrase has joined our lexicon, as the plight of ‘deadbolt dads’ has emerged as a critical issue.

A deadbolt dad is a biological father who is precluded from exercising his paternal role because the mother of his child has chosen not to notify him of the birth of his child, and has declined to acknowledge him as the birth father on the child's birth registration form.

The emergence of this phenomenon is due in part to increased rates of birth to unmarried women; however, there is very little accessible data on the number of births which are registered without a father designation.

Rubber stamp Another unknown father played his anonymous role in New Westminster's Supreme Court several weeks ago.  In the case of Adoption Act and Male Child B.C. Birth Registration Number 06-014023, childless parents who wished to adopt an infant male filed the requisite documents in the court. They expected the usual judicial rubber stamp, without a court hearing (which regularly follows once the criteria set out in B.C.'s Adoption Act have been met).

However, Master Caldwell of the Supreme Court paused, reflected on the law and said “No” - in an articulate analysis of law and policy concerning the rights of fathers to be notified of the proposed adoption of their biological child.

The Master - a Supreme Court judicial officer similar to a Provincial Court Judge - held that the concept of notice and the transparency of court proceedings are central to our system of justice in Canada.

In his view, the lack of notice to the child’s father and the “behind closed doors” decision-making permitted by court practice was flawed. Master Caldwell affirmed a citizen’s right to be heard before his liberty, property rights or family rights are disposed of by judicial proceedings.

He declared that these tenets of law represented the foundation of Canadian jurisprudence, and boldly stated:

“When the legislature enacts in clear and explicit terms that persons may be deprived of their liberty or property or family rights without notice and without the right to be heard, the courts will no doubt faithfully carry out such enactments. If that time should come, the courts will probably be mere instruments of the government and not courts of justice as we understand them - and the constitutional rights of the subject will be gone.”

Well, friends, that day has arrived. On the adoptive parents’ appeal to a justice of the Supreme Court, the appellate judge found that the Adoption Act [emphasis added] clearly articulates the persons from whom consent to a proposed adoption must be obtained. A birth father who has no knowledge of the birth of his child and who has not been declared by the birth mother as the child’s biological father on the birth registration form need not be notified that he has fathered a child, as his consent is not necessary. ......

NELSON, John, LLB
Westside Family Law PerryLawBC.com

John Nelson has an impressive range of lawyerly and political-environmental accomplishments from his passion for forestry (red cedar in particular), fisheries, First Nations heritage, property and treaty-based rights, and environmental issues such as the Pitt River cleanup. John has a degree in law from the University of British Columbia (2007 - 2010).

He was a judical "extern" in 2010 with the BC Provincial Court where he spent much time learning advocacy from the Judges' perspective. John received the prestigious Richard Campbell Memorial Scholarship in 2008 and in 2007-2009 he was a member of the acclaimed Gale Cup, Guile Debate and the Environmental Law debate and negotiation (winning) teams. John articled with the Ministry of Attorney General, Legal Services Branch in 2010 - 2011 and then did Committee and project work with Court Services to 2012. John was called to the Bar of the Law Society in July 2011.

He was invited to join Westside because of his particularly strong advocacy skill in FAMILY LAW. His relatively recent call to the Bar is no reflection of his capabilities as a lawyer: he is developing a reputation for brilliant and courageous legal analysis and well organized, persuasive oral and written submissions in the provincial, supreme and appeal Courts of BC.
