How can We Help You?



What Happens If I Separate / Divorce?

While separation and divorce are difficult decisions to make, Tailor Law actively supports your transition and assists you with making important decisions on your finances, child support matters, spousal support, and the division of property.

Once you have decided that a separation or divorce is the course of action you wish to take, or you have been petitioned for a divorce, you will need to consider making important decisions on the following changes that will take place:

  • You will need to discuss who will stay in the family home
  • How your children and/or shared pets will be cared for
  • Whether you will co-parent or seek full custody
  • Financial support, including child support, and spousal support
  • How assets, joint investments, and property will be divided

Spousal Support

Spousal support involves payments made from one party to another after a separation or divorce. Generally speaking, spousal support is paid by the Party who earns more than the other Party.

The purpose of spousal support is to recognize the contributions that each Party has made during the course of the relationship, to relieve financial hardship, and to share the costs of caring for the children involved in the relationship. As spousal support is not automatic, it must be requested. In determining if you are eligible for spousal support, our legal representatives will discuss your options with you.

Child Support

If your child/children live with one parent for a majority of the time during separation or during the divorce process, the other parent may be required to pay child support. In determining who pays child support, the Ontario Family Court will use the Child Support Guidelines to make determinative decisions on the amount and frequency of the child support.

Although your child/children may spend an equal amount of time with either parent, the parent with the higher income may still have to pay some form of child support. Child support payments are based on gross annual income and the number of children entitled to support.

Division of Property & Assets

If you have decided to separate or divorce and you are married, the value of the property between the Parties is usually shared. As common-law couples have different rights, there are different rules that apply to the division of property.

In order to calculate the value of your respective property at the end of your relationship, you should list and value all of your assets and debts. By taking account of this calculation, you can calculate your Net Family Property (NFP). Your NFP is a calculation of how much money a married Party is worth at the end of the relationship, after taking consideration of what that Party brought to the marriage.

Protecting You & Loved Ones

While we cannot ensure that the other party will cooperate, we can guarantee that we will provide you with a strong course of action, take consideration of your financial situation, and offer guidance on providing counsel / guidance accounting for the best interests of any children involved.

The team at Tailor Law is here to offer you comprehensive services on a number of family law issues, and we are here to assist you in achieving your goals every step of the way.
