Protecting Your Rights

To obtain an order for divorce in Canada, you must first have been living separate and apart from your spouse for at least one year, (except in cases of adultery and physical or mental cruelty which rarely arise) People may be living separate and apart for the purposes of obtaining the divorce even though they are residing in the same household for financial reasons or for reasons pertaining to the children. The settlement process can be simplified if you and your spouse can reach an agreement on important matters out of court, with the guidance of your lawyers. The agreement can then be incorporated into a formal separation agreement which eliminates the need to go to court to have your issues determined by a judge. This is a much more cost-effective and less stressful way of resolving the issues. The issues surrounding separation and divorce can be complex and are critical to your future well-being. It is important to have the best and most complete possible information before making important decisions relating to you and your family's future.

Etobicoke divorce lawyer Murray Lightman will review your situation, including your children, your finances and your long-term goals. Our firm will then develop a comprehensive legal plan designed to achieve your goals.

Murray Lightman is an experienced family law negotiator who also uses collaborative law to develop practical solutions to challenging problems when appropriate. While he prefers to resolve issues on a reasonable out-of-court basis when possible, if necessary, Murray will aggressively litigate in order to protect your rights.
