FAMILY LAW SERVICES WE PROVIDE

PARENTAL DECISION MAKING

FORMERLY CUSTODY OF CHILDREN

In family law, custody refers to a parent’s right to make major decisions about a child’s upbringing such as education, health care and religious matters. Every custody case is different; we will explain your legal options and help you decide what’s best for your children. Ultimately, we want to ensure that the best interests of the children are protected.

PARENTING TIME

FORMERLY ACCESS

Access refers to the visitation rights of the non-custodial parent. Access includes the right to make inquiries about a child and to receive information on their health and education. We will work with you and the other party’s legal representation to develop the ideal access arrangement.

CHILD SUPPORT

Traditionally, the custodial parent will receive money from the other parent as a contribution to the cost of raising a child incurred through expenses such as food and clothing. We work closely with our clients to understand their unique family dynamic and come to the most agreeable resolution for them and the child or children.

SPOUSAL SUPPORT

Also called alimony, spousal support entails money going from one former partner to correct an imbalance in income between the two parties. Spousal support is a complex area of family law with a variety of factors that need to be considered. We’ll work with you to dig deep into the unique facts of your case.

EQUALIZATION OF FAMILY PROPERTY

Dividing the marital assets between two former spouses can be among the most challenging and hotly contested issues following a divorce or separation. We’re in your corner. That’s why we go the extra mile to ensure you receive your fair share of the property accumulated between you and your partner while together.

PUTTING YOUR
NEEDS FIRST

As a Toronto boutique mediation/family law firm, our first hope is that if there is a chance to resolve a relationship break-down through mediation, we will suggest mediation first. Family law services are only recommended as a last resort if mediation does not facilitate an agreement. If legal action is the resulting course of action, or has been initiated by another party, we’ll begin a supportive, solution-driven partnership with our clients.

OUR PROCESS

INITIAL CONSULTATION

You will meet with our Principal Lawyer, Stephen Eaton, to discuss your major questions and help you understand the law as it applies to your unique circumstances. During this consultation session, we will look at your case in general terms and draft a course of action based on whether the other party has already commenced legal action, if financial issues exist, if there are child-focused concerns and more.

MEDIATION

If mediation is a possibility, we will arrange a mediation appointment where both sides can work together with a mediator to help reach a satisfactory agreement based on their unique needs.

LEGAL COUNSEL

If mediation is not an option, we will offer experienced legal counsel supported by the latest technologies so we can be as efficient as possible. In advancing your case, our ultimate aim is to ensure you receive the best possible outcome.

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU

We understand that divorce is one of the most stressful, upsetting and uncertain life events. Our hope is to provide some stability and comfort as you navigate these difficult waters, through expert legal counsel, integrity and compassion.
