Forward-Thinking Family Law Lawyers Representing Clients During Separation

Unlike divorce, a separation simply means that a couple is living separate and apart despite remaining legally married. It’s important to note that a couple can also be considered separated despite living under the same roof. For many individuals, this is an upsetting and confusing period in their lives. Adding further stress to the process, the decisions made during a couple’s separation may have important implications for property division, child access and custody, spousal support, and child support. For these reasons, it is beneficial to receive legal advice early in the process of separation, in order to ensure you understand and protect your legal rights.

Serving six offices throughout Aurora, Barrie, Downtown Toronto, Mississauga, North York and Scarborough, the lawyers at Gelman & Associates have extensive experience representing clients throughout the process of separation and divorce. Our diverse group of lawyers has a reputation for compassion, efficiency and toughness if needed when representing our clients. Our firm’s priority is to enable clients to make educated decisions by providing them with the information and resources required. Our family law lawyers strive to provide not only excellent legal counsel but also a positive customer service experience throughout a difficult transition period.

Protecting Your Rights During Separation

A separation agreement is a legally binding contract created between two partners, subsequent to their separation. This contract sets out each party’s rights on issues such as:

  • child custody and access;
  • division of property;
  • debts;
  • child support; and
  • spousal support.

A separation agreement drawn up by experienced family law lawyers will help to ensure your rights are protected during separation. Entering into such an agreement is an efficient and effective way to outline the terms of your separation and avoid confusion and headache later on down the road. To ensure the validity of a separation agreement, both parties in a relationship should seek independent legal advice.

Working with an experienced family law lawyer to draft a separation agreement is the best way to ensure that your rights are protected. At Gelman & Associates, our lawyers have decades of collective experience drafting separation agreements and aggressively litigating separation disputes.
