Audra M. Bayer

Family separation and divorce is a difficult process. Audra Bayer has been practicing family law for over 20 years. She prides herself on being a down to earth person who affirms the human condition as she helps you with navigating the family law system.

Audra recognizes that the work that you do with your lawyer is some of the most important work you will ever do with a professional and that recognizes further that the impact of the outcomes from your proceedings, will impact you and those you love.

Audra’s practice is defined by the principles of guidance, education and empowerment. It is important that you have a clear understanding of your legal rights and obligations and the choices with respect to processes available to you for the resolution of your issues.

The focus of Audra’s practice is mediation, arbitration, collaborative law, and family law coaching including offering unbundled services. Audra firmly believes that where possible and appropriate to do so, families should use meditation, arbitration or collaborative law to resolve family matters, including:

  • Divorce & Separation
  • Child Custody & Parenting Arrangements
  • Child & Spousal Support
  • Family Agreements
  • Family Property & Debt Division
  • Wealth & Asset Protection

Audra offers services as a lawyer but also as a mediator and arbitrator and brings over 20 years of experience and a practice that has been predicated on complex family law settlement resolution to the mediation/arbitration table.

Audra is open, communicative and dedicated, and we also expect the same of you. You will have homework but Audra’s team which includes her 3 paralegals Deborah, Amber & Tanya and her associate Karsten, will work with you shoulder to shoulder and provide you with or direct you to the resources you need to get you through what can be a challenging process including referrals to counselors, financial planners, business valuators, accountants, parenting coaches and parenting coordinators amongst others.

Audra is, without hesitation, the most professional, knowledgeable, classy, down-to-earth and compassionate person that I have had the pleasure to work with. From the time I first walked into her office a year ago I felt safe and confident that she REALLY knows and reads the situation and gave me excellent advice at all levels. Her work is beyond thorough – she identified numerous factual errors from the opposition which certainly saved the day for me. There are no words to realistically describe this amazing lawyer – the world needs more like her. The support staff there, especially Karsten and Deb are very warm and caring and go the extra mile to make a person feel comfortable and cared for. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

“She is experienced, fair and very knowledgeable.  One of the most empowering women I have ever met and am enjoying working with her to keep my safe and find a healthy balance for my kids.”

Audra guided me through a collaborative divorce.  She was extremely knowledgeable, explaining her reasoning behind her concerns, comments and suggestions.  Communication with her and her team was spot on.  I always felt informed and even when I personally was not as engaged, I knew they were dealing with things behind the scenes.  Audra is very tenacious, and it likely had an overwhelmingly positive outcome on my collaborative process-no stone left unturned.  Work quality was great, no issues and value was worth every cent.  Highly recommended – in fact, I have already personally recommended her a number of times.”

Audra’s voice of reason really helps when you are on the edge…you will positively know that you are in good hands and can get through this.  The one word to describe Audra is “genuine”.”
