Stay or leave: How mediation lends a hand to Ontario couples

Deciding to unite in marriage is not to be taken lightly, to paraphrase words invoked at the moment of commitment. The same may be said of the moment the decision to dissolve a marriage is made. Each in their own way signifies a dramatic life change for Ontario spouses, and the leave-taking transition may be the optimum time to seek mediation with the help of an experienced family law practitioner.

How separation and divorce in Ontario affects pet-loving couples

Part of the extreme distress that often characterizes the dissolution of a marriage is realizing that virtually everything that made up the warp and woof of one's daily life will now be legally viewed as divisible. Furniture that one spouse may regard as a sentimental keepsake and the other spouse views indifferently tallies up as a shared asset. As such, it may unexpectedly create a potentially fractious scenario. Ontario couples embarking on separation and divorce may encounter one dismaying discovery after another.

A happy divorce: An oxymoron no more

Divorce has never been synonymous with happiness, but the process has undergone some evolution over the last few years. After saying their "I do's", few couples ever anticipate that one day they'll be calling it quits and finding themselves fighting over who gets the Martini glasses and who gets the microwave. Yet, when it's over, it's over. Fortunately, in the legal landscape of divorce, there is an alternative that can make the separation process if not happifying, then at least more smooth and amicable.
