Jeff Van de Kleut is dedicated to helping clients navigate difficult family law issues concerning marriage, cohabitation, divorce or separation.

Jeff would almost always recommend that couples have a contract in place for a long-term commitment with a partner. Should you and your partner agree that a separation or divorce is the next best step, Jeff can guide through the process of divorce while ensuring your rights are protected.


Jeff is one of only a few lawyers in Belleville that are trained in collaborative family law. Collaborative family law is a private, discreet process where both parties sign a contract agreeing to stay out of court, giving each party more privacy and more control of their outcome. It is often recommended for families who are seeking amicable resolution and are interested in avoiding the adverse impacts that fighting in court will have on their family and children.

If you are interested in protecting your rights in a marriage or cohabitation, or if you are about to pursue avenues of divorce or separation, call Jeff Van de Kleut today.


Jeff has over 25 years of trial experience, and knows what needs to be done to achieve positive results in court. He will always aim to reach a settlement through negotiation to avoid the financial and emotional stress of litigation; however if issues cannot be resolved amicably, he is prepared to fight for you in the courtroom.
