Galbraith Family Law - Barrie Family Lawyers

Divorce happens. The statistics on divorce rates are high, and behind each of those numbers is a family’s unique story; divorce can take a serious toll on the lives of everyone involved. If you are facing the possibility of a divorce or separation, you are not alone and help is available; you don’t have to go through this difficult experience without legal assistance.

A divorce is not just the end of a personal relationship; it’s a complex legal process, and there is a lot of misinformation out there. Many people mistakenly believe that they cannot afford a decent divorce lawyer, but seeking sound legal advice can actually end up saving you money, time, and stress; it can be an investment in your future and your peace of mind.

Every divorce is different. A good family lawyer will listen to your story, take the time to understand your family’s unique challenges, and help you work toward the best possible outcome for your particular situation.

Some divorces are uncontested, and can be handled relatively amicably by negotiating a separation agreement. This is a detailed contract specifying in detail many of the issues that come along with a divorce, such as how the couple is to divide marital property and share financial responsibilities, and whether anyone will receive spousal support. Your lawyer can help you negotiate and draft an agreement that works for you. Your lawyer can also help you work through issues involving children, such as custody issues, child access and visitation questions, and child support. Your lawyer will understand the legal framework underlying all of these issues, and advise you about your rights, your options, and how the law applies in your case. At every step in the process, your lawyer will be able to provide advice and guidance about the separation agreement and any other issues, and work to reach a resolution that is fair and equitable. A good family lawyer will also be familiar with legal procedures in Ontario, and can be instrumental in making sure that the process runs smoothly and encounters no unexpected delays or complications.

If some of these difficult issues cannot be resolved by the parties through negotiation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution, a divorce can be contentious. When you have a qualified family lawyer in your corner, you can be sure that you’ll have a seasoned and experienced ally to protect your rights, strive for a reasonable solution, and represent you in court proceedings if necessary. Your lawyer will be familiar with the litigation process and can formulate a strategy designed to bring about a positive solution, so that you can move on with your life.
