Stanley Family Law: Divorce & Separation Lawyer Assisting Clients With Resolving Matrimonial Issues in the Greater Toronto Area, North York & Area


The Divorce Process

Learn about your rights and obligations

If you are interested in obtaining a divorce it is essential that you learn about your legal rights and obligations pertaining to your respective situation. There are a number of factors that must be considered including whether property must be divided between the parties and if there are children of the relationship then child support may be payable and a reasonable parenting plan must be drafted so as to ensure that the custody of the children is established and an access schedule is maintained. Other issues that may need to be resolved include whether the division and sale of the matrimonial home is necessary to provide a clean break between the parties as well as whether there is any potential for a spousal support claim as it may be that one spouse was dependent on the other throughout the relationship and may therefore have financial need.

Separation Agreements

Separation that promotes finality

Separation agreements are the most common form of domestic contract and deal with the rights and obligations arising from the relationship and its corresponding breakdown. Separation agreements can incorporate provisions dealing with property division and equalization, child support, child custody and access, spousal support, and much more. Stanley Family Law is an advocate of separation agreements given that they can help settle the majority of legal issues that have arisen between the parties, often on a permanent basis thereby providing the parties with a clean slate to move forward with their lives. Separation agreements can also be one of the least costly methods of resolving the legal issues in a separation so long as the parties remain amicable and remain willing to compromise with the other party to settle their matter.
