Mississauga Family Lawyers Guiding Clients Through Separation & Divorce
Going through the process of separation and divorce can be emotionally and financially challenging, but the right legal team can help you ensure it won’t be lengthier or more expensive than necessary. At Campbell Bader LLP, we offer compassionate and experienced family law advice to support spouses through a difficult period in their life.
We know from experience that a positive outcome usually involves a bumpy ride – one that can make lawyers unpopular from time to time. We’re okay with that. Our family lawyers always act in the best interests of our clients.
Mississauga Divorce Lawyers for Contested and Uncontested Divorce
Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage by the courts. In Canada, a divorce is typically granted on the basis of a separation of a year or more.
A divorce may be contested or uncontested. In an uncontested divorce, the couple agrees to the terms of their divorce, including matters relating to child support and custody, division of property and spousal support payments. In a contested divorce, where a couple is unable to come to an agreement on the issues between them, the terms will be decided in court. Whether contested or uncontested, the parties have to satisfy the Court of the suitability of support and custody/access arrangements, where applicable.
At Campbell Bader LLP, our divorce lawyers always offer advice with our clients’ best interests in mind. We strive to avoid trial whenever possible and encourage clients to consider collaborative family law options or participate in negotiation and mediation. That being said, our lawyers have been litigating family law disputes in court since 1999 and are fully prepared to advocate at trial to protect our client’s rights.
Lawyers Assisting with Legal Separation Agreements
Our family lawyers can also help clients protect their rights during a period of separation. A separation agreement sets out the various rights and obligations of each spouse, and creates a roadmap for the period that may or may not end in divorce. During the one-year separation period, many couples negotiate an agreement that addresses ongoing matters between them, including:
- Child custody and support;
- Spousal support;
- Division of property;
- Residence in the family home; and
- Education and welfare of children.
