Ontario law considers a couple to be legally separated if the two are living in separate residences and do not intend to live together again. Does this sentence describe you and your former partner? If so, you should have a legal separation agreement specifying the terms of the separation. Since this agreement will affect you and your children for the remainder of your life, make sure you have the best legal representation you can find. To protect your rights, call Max Rapoport Family Law Services right away before signing anything.
If you're going through this heart-breaking process, consider getting a divorce lawyer. Below are a few reasons why you should get a divorce lawyer rather than representing yourself at the court:
You are not familiar with family courts
Though most judges are patient and compassionate, if you don't know what to say and you’re missing documents, you may be pushing the judge’s patience past their breaking point. They will be less likely to sympathize with you.
You need practical advice at this emotional time
Divorce can be extremely stressful, and you can feel multiple emotions on the same day. This may hinder your work productivity and impact your ability to resolve important matters. By hiring a lawyer, they will have a clear and level head to separate their emotion on the case and focus on the practical part.
Need help in legal agreements and paperwork
During a divorce process, you can get buried in paperwork trying to figure out which papers need to be filled out and filed in court. It is difficult but having them done is crucial, as the outcome of the case depends heavily on the paperwork.
We know that dealing with family issues, especially divorce, needs a strategic and compassionate approach. Our lawyer is empathetic and ready to listen to the concerns of our clients. Having dealt with cases for over 25 years, our divorce lawyer has the expertise to handle various cases with the appropriate solutions.
