Family Lawyer Cindy Scharff Got Featured in MoneyWise

Family law lawyer Cindy Scharff from Gelman and Associates in Barrie, Ontario was quoted by MoneyWise on their article about how to protect one’s finances when leaving an abusive partner. She said that while safety is the number one concern, somebody has to think of how to leave.

“A lot of people are starting from zero trying to figure out: Well, what do I even have? And then, what do I need? Both of those can be big unknowns to people when they’re trying to figure out how they can do this,” says Scharff.

Ontario family law lawyer Lisa Gelman was recently featured in CanadaTalks SiriusXM 16. She shares a unique perspective on how to divorce a spouse in these challenging times of pandemic and what you need to know about living together apart.

“There are some fun ways for people who are separating, who are amicable. They’ve just grown apart and they realize that they no longer are going to be a significant other to another. But usually, when they have children, as always be this, because they’ve decided for the best interest of their children being great parents. ‘We’re going to put our issues behind and put the issues of our children first and with them to come to the realization, either on an interim basis, or long term. We’re going to save living apart under the same words, although we’re separated.’”
