Getting a divorce or legal separation represents a change in the lives of everyone involved, but it doesn’t have to be a stressful experience.

Reputable Divorce Attorney
If you wish to terminate your legal marriage and obtain a divorce in Canada, the application may be brought to The Superior Court of Justice or the Unified Family Court. After a divorce is granted, your legal status will change from married to single. We can help you get prepared and ensure your rights are protected during the process.
Filing for divorce is not mandatory if you wish to split from your spouse and it is only legally required if one party wishes to remarry. There are three grounds that constitute the “breakdown of a marriage” that would set the stage for a divorce application. They include:
- A one-year separation
Some of the issues that may be contested include:
- Child custody and access
- Child support
- Division of property
- Spousal support
A divorce can be an emotionally and financially draining process that changes your life forever, so it’s imperative that you have adequate legal representation every step of the way.
Navigating Your Separation
If you are separated, it means that you are living apart from your spouse but are still legally married. Being separated means, you still have to resolve any issues with child custody, child access, support payments, debts and division of property.
The best way to have a seamless separation is to have a comprehensive separation agreement in place before you move on to the next stage of your life. A strong separation agreement ensures your rights are protected and all details of the separation are covered so you can move forward with peace of mind.
