Family Law Services 


Two people who have been married, either in Ontario or in a foreign jurisdiction, and are now separated may be eligible to obtain a divorce in Ontario.  

Property Division


Under the Family Law Act, when two people who are legally married and have separated, either party may make a claim for the division or equalization of property.

Spousal Support

Since the law views spousal relationships as financial relationships, when a marriage or cohabitation has ended, the person with more income or assets may have to pay support to the other spouse.

Custody, Access & Parenting Plans

A separation or divorce can be difficult and emotionally stressful life event. When children are involved and parents cannot agree on appropriate care arrangements, these stressors can quickly become overwhelming.

Child Support

Both parents have a responsibility to financially support their children. If your child is not primarily living with you, you have an obligation to pay support to the child’s primary care-giver.

Child Protection Law 

In Ontario, child protection matters are governed by the Child and Family Services Act. This Act sets out the manner in which child protective services are provided in Ontario.
