Family Law

We know that this can be a difficult time for you and your family. That's why we do everything we can to make the transition and straight forward and painless as possible.

Types of divorces

No-fault divorces

Are where the married couple has been separated for at least one year. 

Simple divorce

Where the married couple have been separated for at least one year and have no children. 

Uncontensted divorce

Where the other party does not defend or take exception to the terms of the divorce application. 

We provide help for all these type of divorces.

Law Boutique LLP handles uncontested, no-fault divorce applications – both with or without kids(simple divorce). We prepare and file all the materials required for your divorce – most of them by the nextbusiness day. We ensure your application is correct and complete and your divorce is granted, often withintwo months of filing. Clients have to provide a government-issued marriage certificate (or acceptableequivalent) and to arrange to have a friend or family member serve their spouse with the divorce application.You may save money using a divorce-kit – but a good lawyer can save you time, stress and relieve you of theworry that you are giving too much - or you or your children are getting too little.

Types of family law agreements

Separation Agreement

A Separation Agreement is the first step in the uncontested divorce process for most couples. A signedSeparation Agreement will confirm that all spousal support, child support, child access and custody, property and pension division issues have been settled between the parties and that there is an agreed process for transferring or selling the home or other assets. Your bank, credit union or mortgage lender will require a formal Separation Agreement – complete with certificates of independent legal advice for both spouses - in order to calculate your debt service ratio for yournew mortgage.

Prenuptial Agreement

A Prenuptial Agreement is prepared for couples prior to marriage and a Cohabitation Agreement isprepared for a couples commencing a common law relationship - both agreements set limitations on thespousal support or property that the other spouse may receive if the new relationship ends. Candidates for a Prenuptial or Cohabitation Agreement are typically like-minded couples that have alreadysuffered an expensive breakup in the past, are retired or close to retirement (and have no time to recoup anyfinancial losses) and those that want their children (not the spouse) to inherit the bulk of their estate.

Pricing

Legal fees are listed below. Third party costs, such as marriage certificates, private detectives, skip tracing, process servers and court costs (about $290) are extra. If matters become contested or agreements take more than 3 hours to finalize, extra time will be charged at $240 to $360 hour based on the seniority of the lawyer.
