Mississauga Separation & Divorce Lawyers
Going through the process of separation and divorce can be emotionally and financially challenging, but the right legal advocate can help you ensure it won’t be lengthier or more expensive than necessary. Ginny Lee, acting in her capacity as of counsel* to Bader Law, offers compassionate and experienced family law advice to support spouses through a difficult period in their life.
Family 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 Bader Law, of counsel Ginny Lee always offers advice with our clients’ best interests in mind. She strives to avoid trial whenever possible and encourage clients to consider collaborative family law options or participate in negotiation and mediation. That being said, she has been litigating family law disputes in court for a number of years and is fully prepared to advocate at trial to protect her client’s rights.
Family Lawyers Assisting with Legal Separation Agreements
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.
