Comprehensive Divorce Representation

Spouses who are choosing to end their marriage have many options to consider — such as the negotiation of a separation agreement that can resolve their issues instead of a courtroom process. John Fairburn can help you decide on the process that might be appropriate for your situation. Also, our office will represent your interests on key issues such as:

To obtain a divorce, a client has to commence a family law case requesting a divorce under the Divorce Act (Canada), and it can only be granted by a judge of the Supreme Court, typically by way of a written application in a mandatory format to the court registry. Divorces in almost all cases are granted on an unopposed or "no fault" basis, without the necessity of a personal appearance by the client in court. The earliest a divorce can be applied for is one year after the separation date, although the claim for one can be filed immediately after separation.

Planning For Divorce And Life After

While the granting of divorce allows a person to remarry, it also triggers other concerns, such as the need to prepare and sign a new will and change beneficiary designations for life insurance or registered retirement pension plans, for example, or, in some circumstances, tax obligations.

John Fairburn is an experienced divorce lawyer who has seen many divorce cases through to conclusion — through the courts, in mediation and negotiated settlement. He can provide the knowledgeable representation you require.
