We are open in our 6 offices to serve your needs

 

Couples split for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they grow apart, they stop seeing eye-to-eye or they find new love interests. In many cases, minor problems or issues pile on top of each other and there’s no single cause for divorce. Does the current state of our economy force people into Barrie divorce lawyers’ offices, or does it encourage them to steer clear of divorce?

Finances: An Age-Old Bone of Contention

People have been fighting about money since… well, since the advent of money. But not all divorces are related to individual financial problems. The University of Virginia conducted a study—The Survey of Marital Generosity—that suggests bad economic times either strengthen marriages or cause couples to put them off, perhaps because they just can’t afford to divorce.

Dollars and Sense: When Splitting Up is the Right Thing to Do

Many people would rather take their chances in a sluggish economy (although ours is on an upswing) than stay married for financial reasons. Sometimes infidelity, domestic violence or other serious issues factor in a couple’s decision. If you’d rather divorce than stay in an unhappy marriage, regardless of the economy, your Barrie divorce lawyer can help you sort out all the details so you’re set up for success.

The Buck Stops Here

Divorce happens across all age brackets and throughout every income level, and it doesn’t discriminate by race or ethnicity. It’s normal to be worried about how you’ll make ends meet or if you’ll even get to keep your matrimonial home after a divorce, but if you’re unhappy with your marriage, you don’t have to feel trapped; talking to a Barrie divorce lawyer can help you see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Many people who are struggling to pay the bills can’t even think about affording a lawyer, and if you’re one of them, there’s still good news. Divorces are complex, but you can figure out how to get a divorce without a lawyer; all you need to know is which forms to file, how to file them and what to expect. The only downside? You’re not as familiar with the law as a Barrie divorce lawyer is—but even if you’ve already started the process on your own, you can begin to work with a lawyer later.

Paying the Lion’s Share: How a Barrie Divorce Lawyer Can Protect You

If you’re concerned that your spouse is motivated by financial reasons, let your Barrie divorce lawyer know. Your lawyer’s main focus is to protect you, ensuring that your spouse doesn’t take advantage of you through spousal support or during the division of your marital property. Conversely, your lawyer will help you determine what you’re entitled to during and after your divorce.
