Issues That May Arise From a Divorce or Separation
If you are married, the Divorce Act, Family Law Act, the Federal Child Support Guidelines, and the Children’s Law Reform Act govern the issues that arise as a result of the breakdown of your marriage. These issues can and may include:
- Child custody and access
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Property and asset division (equalization of your family property)
- Security for support
- Medical and dental benefits
- Sale or transfer of the matrimonial home
Our Team has an excellent working knowledge of the legislation and the case law that govern issues that arise when parties separate or divorce.
The issues arising from the breakdown of common law relationships are governed by the Family Law Act, the Children’s Law Reform Act, and the common law. Common law couples do not have the same property rights as married couples.
There are several ways to resolve the issues that arise as a result of the breakdown of a relationship. Some of the options include: negotiation of the terms of a Separation Agreement between Counsel and your former spouse, Mediation and/or Arbitration, and Litigation.
