Negotiation and Separation Agreements

Ending any relationship involves many complicated legal issues. We’re here to explain them to you, guide you through the separation and divorce process, and help you come to a final resolution so you can move on with your life. Many divorces are resolved outside of court with settlements formalized in a legally binding separation agreement. As experienced family lawyers, we are the best in helping you negotiate the best terms possible and ensure that your settlement is the best possible for you and your family.

Litigation involves numerous documents that need to be prepared and submitted to the court under clear timelines that force both parties to move the matter along. It’s a difficult, emotional, and expensive process that should be avoided if possible. Unfortunately, if a matter can’t be resolved outside of court your only recourse is to go to court. In such cases, you want a lawyer with experience, who understands the law and will advocate for you. We’ve argued cases at every level of court in Ontario.
