We are open in our 8 offices to serve your needs

Many people view divorce as a fresh start. In fact, after your Toronto divorce lawyer helps you obtain your divorce, you’re free to do anything you’d like—and that can include going back to school. Whether you’re ready for a career change or you simply never finished school to begin with, this might be the perfect time to jump in with both feet.

Timing is Everything

Your Toronto divorce lawyer may be able to give you a fairly concrete timeline for your divorce. You’ll be able to plan accordingly once you have that information. You don’t have to wait until your divorce is over before you hit the books, but you do have to make sure you’ve got the time and other resources to give it your best.

Considerations: Kids, Work and Other Obligations

Divorce can be an extremely busy time. Kids need to be taken to see the noncustodial parent, there are appointments with your Toronto divorce lawyer, and everyday life has to continue. You might find it easier to wait until your divorce is final before you enrol in a program and start taking classes. However, some parents are able to make this transition by scheduling classes during visitation times with the other parent.

Many Toronto colleges offer evening and weekend classes, so it’s possible to continue to work while attending school. It may take you a little longer to earn a degree than it would a full-time student, but starting a new chapter of your life may be worth it.

Being an Older or Non-traditional Student

Divorcees often worry that they’ll be older than the rest of the students in their classes. While many students are fresh out of secondary school, you’ll be in good company—lots of divorced men and women choose to go back, and they represent a wide range of ages throughout Toronto.

Choosing the Right Path

No matter what you’re interested in, whether continuing the education you started but didn’t finish or starting from scratch, you’ll need to explore your options. Toronto is home to several universities and colleges that offer a wide variety of programs.

What’s to Gain?

Generally, going back to school can help you in several ways. It can provide a diversion that keeps you busy and gives you a sense of accomplishment. Some might even argue that it will provide you with the credentials you need to earn more than your ex—and there’s nothing wrong with that.
