Divorce, Child Custody & Adoption

Ms. Gonsalves-Sabola is a compassionate attorney in all areas of divorce, child custody and adoption matters.


Divorce can be a complex and emotional process. In The Bahamas you can obtain a divorce on any of the following grounds:

  • adultery
  • cruelty
  • desertion lasting longer than two years
  • a separation lasting longer than five years
  • a homosexual act outside the marriage
  • sodomy or bestiality
  • if the husband has been guilty of rape

The courts will decide how any property is to be divided between the husband and wife and what payments, if any, are to be made by the husband or wife to each other or in respect of children.

Ms. Gonsalves-Sabola can help you get through the process as smoothly as possible so you can start your new life.

Child Custody

Child custody is concerned with where children will live and who they will live with after a divorce. Ms. Gonsalves-Sabola will fight to help parents secure child custody arrangements that are in the best interests of their children.


Adoption is an exciting, yet complex issue for prospective parents in The Bahamas. Ms. Gonsalves-Sabola can guide would-be parents through the adoption process and answer all their questions. Welcoming a child into a family is a wonderful thing, and she will ensure it is done legally and accurately so that all adoptive parents have to worry about is welcoming their new addition to the family.
