Our Lawyers on Separation
“Many clients do not realize how much more messy and complex a common-law separation can be as opposed to divorce. Unlike divorce, common-law property does not currently have an equivalent to the Matrimonial Property Act and this makes it a challenge to confirm who will receive what at the end of a common-law relationship. Consulting with a lawyer early on in your matter helps to provide a roadmap on how to get from separation to resolution and allows clients to make informed decisions on how they want to proceed.”
“The law varies for common-law couples in comparison to divorce for division of property, assets, and liabilities. Many clients make an assumption as to what they’re entitled to. Helping clients understand what their rights or responsibilities allow the client to make informed decisions during the breakdown of a common-law relationship.”
“Context is key to helping parties move on with their lives in this difficult period of their lives. Each Divorce matter needs to be dealt with in a skillful yet delicate manner with empathy. If the matter proceeds to litigation in court, the client should feel confident that their counsel/lawyer is representing their rights.”
