A divorce is never representative of an easy time in your life. Usually it’s mired in strife and heartbreak, with tempers running hot and emotions running high. That’s why it’s important that you are able to find a compassionate Mississauga divorce lawyer who can approach the separation with a steady hand and a level head.
A Strategic Approach
Our philosophy is to get you what you want out of your separation, as painlessly as possible. We help you to determine your goals, and see if we can work with your former partner to find an amicable resolution, so that you both might be able to put it all behind you and move on with your lives.
Types of Divorces
Divorces generally fall into three categories:
- Joint Petition – A joint petition is the most amicable type of divorce. It’s filed when both partners are able to easily agree to the terms of the separation, and file for divorce together. This is the quickest and most inexpensive type of separation, and is the ideal first option for all of our clients.
- Uncontested Divorce – A divorce is uncontested when one partner files, and the other does not raise any objections to the terms of the divorce. This isn’t quite as painless as a joint petition, but it’s still considerably less expensive than the alternative. If a joint petition is out of the question, we will advise you on how best to proceed towards filing for an uncontested divorce.
- Contested Divorce – If the terms of a divorce filing are not agreed upon by both parties, the divorce becomes contested. This can mean extensive negotiations, massive legal fees, and even expensive trials to settle disputes. We attempt to avoid this type of divorce whenever possible. If a contested divorce is inevitable, we act to find a settlement as quickly as possible to minimize your expenses.
