Decision-making responsibility and parenting time for the children can become one of the most emotionally draining parts of a separation or divorce.
When advising about decision-making responsibility and parenting issues, we always keep the best interests of the children in mind. We seek to assist you in making cooperative transitions in parenting your children and satisfying your children’s needs.
Parents must make key decisions about their children’s care such as how to co-parent and where the children will reside. These decisions may affect how much time each parent spends with the child, how the child is cared for, and the role each parent plays in the child’s care and upbringing. Children – children are – children’s careCall Us Now
When handled correctly and effectively, child support matters can be uncomplicated. In general, if you have a child and that child resides with the other partner for 40% or more of the time, you must pay child support or vice versa. The Child Support Guidelines normally determine how much you must pay based on your income and the number of children for whom you are paying.
You will most probably be ordered to pay child support if your case is heard by a judge in Court. If you are negotiating with the other parent of your child, you can negotiate a child support agreement that differs from the standard “table amount” but if the arrangement isn’t fair and doesn’t properly care for the child, a judge may change the agreement if asked to.Call Us Now
Both married and common-law partners can be eligible for spousal support. The support amount is based on a spouse’s actual financial needs or the economic disadvantage caused by the relationship. Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines are a beginning point for a judge to use when determining spousal support amounts.
Your marriage or relationship included a financial partnership as well. The goal of spousal support is to allow the spouse who earns less to become financially self-sufficient. While the law expects people to be self-sufficient, we can assist you to understand what the law says you are entitled to and your duties.
Judges may also consider each spouse’s assets and income, the length of the marriage, the role each spouse had in the marriage and raising the children, and any earlier agreements they made regarding support, among other factors.Call Us Now
Taman Singh Law seeks to reduce hostility and reach a reasonable outcome between you and your partner. We confirm if your spouse is entitled to spousal support, the amount of support, the duration of the support, and the means of payment.Call Us Now
If you are married, you are likely entitled to property equalization.
After deciding on child care and support, dividing property and assets can be one of the most worrying and tense phases in dissolving a marriage. Our role is to help and guide you through the process.
When you separate and divorce, property accumulated during the marriage is subject to what is known as “equalization.” With a few exceptions, such as gifts or inheritances, this principle applies to the majority of assets. Difficulties can develop when the parties cannot agree on what was purchased, when it was acquired, the asset’s current value and an equitable asset divide.
Dividing property can be difficult, especially if a couple has collected significant assets outside of their permanent residence, such as a cottage, investment property, or a valuable collection of art or memorabilia, to name a few examples. As a result, it is prudent to seek competent and unbiased legal counsel from a knowledgeable separation lawyer. Our divorce lawyers are dedicated to ensuring that you understand the process and that your property and rights are safeguarded.
Property Division and Common-Law
Common-law relationships in Canada are not subject to the same property division regulations as marriages. In essence, each common-law partner retains the property brought into the relationship. There are no equalization between common-law partners when they separateCall Us Now
Your situation will choose the best course of action for you. Regardless of your situation, you should obtain legal advice from well experienced lawyers at Taman Singh Law.
Divorce costs vary depending on the factors such as legal fees, child support orders, and spousal support orders (if applicable).
Most likely not.
The absence of sufficient reasonable arrangements for the care of the children is one of the fundamental grounds for divorce. The court will be extremely hesitant to issue a divorce if the parties have not yet calculated child support or developed a parenting plan, since this would be harmful to the children’s best interests.
The first thing you should probably do is contact lawyers at Taman Singh Law to educate yourself about the divorce procedure, limitation periods, and consequences.
Yes. To get a lawful divorce, you must file an application with the court and obtain a divorce judgement there.
Whether or not your spouse agrees for a divorce has no effect on your ability to get one if that is what you choose.
It is dependent. You may still apply for divorce in Ontario if your spouse still lives there and meets the normally resident criteria, as well as has lived in that area for one year preceding the beginning of the process.
Same-sex couples who live in Canada have the same rights to divorce as straight spouses. The Divorce Act, like Ontario’s Family Law Act (which governs property claims for divorced spouses), makes no difference between straight and same-sex couples, and Canadian courts apply the law equally to all married couples.
