The Next Chapter
Divorce

Divorce allows you to move onto the next chapter in life, meanwhile attaining a sense of security over your future financial assets, parenting decisions, and more. The process of divorce does not require you to appear before a judge in most cases, and can be completed by way of collaboration, mediation, or arbitration.

A formal divorce offers opportunities for certain rights such as spousal support, child support, and property rights. You can also define obligations, such as parenting obligations, spousal support obligations, and division of family assets and debts. This will help avoid future disagreements and allow you to securely and peacefully begin the next chapter of your life.

We are committed to making this process as easy and stress-free as possible, by guiding you through all the issues that need to be addressed and helping you avoid unnecessary risks. We understand that this is a sensitive time for you and we will guide you through the entire process, from communicating with your spouse and their lawyer to representing you in court and taking care of all paperwork and formalities. Communication and transparency in the process is key. We will always keep you updated and provide all necessary support.

In Canada, you must apply to the Court for a divorce.

If you are divorcing amicably, meaning you have both peacefully agreed to the terms of your divorce such as parenting, support, and property issues, you can apply for a desk divorce. We can simply prepare the paperwork and submit it to court. You will then receive a divorce order in 2-4 months.

If you are divorcing non-amicably, meaning you have disagreements over anything such as spousal support, child support, or property division, you will need to go through divorce litigation. Your lawyer will guide you through the process. However, this can be a long, stressful, and expensive process.

How It Works
  1. Initial Meeting
  2. To guide you through this process we will meet to discuss your family situation and expected outcomes such as spousal support, child support, and parenting. If you are in alignment with the expected outcome, and we can reasonably expect your spouse to consent to it, we will prepare the paperwork.

  3. The Paperwork
  4. The paperwork will take some time. Once it is ready for your review, we will meet with you to review the draft documents and ensure nothing was overlooked. When you are ready, we will sign the documents and send them off to your spouse and court.

  5. The Judge’s Review
  6. The judge will need 6-10 weeks to review the paperwork and grant a divorce judgment. On occasion, the judge may request additional information. No matter what happens, we will be by your side to guide you through the process.
