Separation and Divorce
The breakdown of a marriage can be overwhelming without the legal issues the break-up may create. It is emotionally exhausting for all parties involved (children too!).
Some couples can work together to make compromises and settle matters outside of Court. This can be achieved through alternative dispute resolutions such as settlement meetings, counsel-negotiation or mediation in Toronto. Once an agreement is reached, it is highly advisable for same to be formalized into a Separation Agreement drafted by counsel. Separate lawyers will need to be involved: one to draft the agreement and the other to review and make changes, if any.
Other couples simply cannot meet eye-to-eye or even come to the table to negotiate. These parties can resolve their matters by using separate lawyers in Etobicoke and going through the Court process. The length, cost and strategies involved in finalizing a divorce through this route vary depending on different issues and choices the parties make. No two cases are the same and no two outcomes are the same.
