Advising and Preparing You During Divorce

Dissolving a marriage is typically difficult for everyone, especially when there are children or significant property interests involved, or when the spouses have been married for most of their adult lives. At the law office of Thomas J. MacLennan, Barrister & Solicitor, we not only advise you on your rights during divorce, but also prepare you for the variety of matters that can accompany divorce, such as child custody and access, disposition of marital assets and debts, child and spousal support and all other issues that may arise.

During this stressful and emotional time, it is important to hire a lawyer who will act as your personal advocate, deal with the paperwork and ease your worries. Our Toronto divorce law firm will navigate your case through the court system in a timely and efficient matter, in order to reach an optimal resolution as quickly as possible.

Ontario No-Fault Divorce — a Lawyer Can Advise You Through the Process

If you and your spouse have been living separate and apart for one year or more, you are entitled to a no-fault divorce in Ontario. While the law in this area may seem simple, things can become complicated when you begin to deal with property division, establish child custody and access arrangements, and determine child support and/or spousal support.

  • Asset division and support: At the law office of Thomas J. MacLennan, Barrister & Solicitor, we work with a variety of experts to accurately value and divide assets during complex and high asset divorces. The division of marital assets and debts can become complicated when one spouse runs a business and business assets and interests require valuation. Financial issues involving spousal support can also become complex in cases involving lengthy marriages.
  • Custody and support: We also advise clients on how to work with their spouses in order to come to a positive custody and access arrangement for their children. If parental alienation is an issue, or if an agreement cannot be reached, the courts are directed to make a decision based on the best interests of the children, and the law office of Thomas J. MacLennan will help to present your case in the most favourable manner.
