Tanya Davies is a highly experienced divorce lawyer who represents clients in a range of family law cases, including divorce, child custody and access, child and spousal support, and property division.
In Ontario, a divorce can be obtained once the parties have lived separate and apart for one year. This separation can be either physical or emotional. Grounds for an immediate divorce are cruelty and adultery. Divorce can be a world of conflicts between the two parties, or it can be civil. Either way, a court order is required. It is important that you are fully aware of the impact a divorce can have on your parental and matrimonial property rights. Even if the divorce is uncontested and all the issues are agreed upon by the couple, it is essential to consult an Ottawa family lawyer and obtain independent legal advice.
At Davies Divorce Law we will vigorously protect your rights in and out of court.
Child custody and access are the two most difficult aspects in a divorce. The basic issues that revolve around custody are who will be the primary decision maker in regards to the child and which parent the child will live with. Access involves visitation schedule of the other parent. The custodial arrangements may be worked out between the parents, or with professional assistance. At all times, the child’s best interests must be a priority. When the parents are not able to agree either in mediation or with the assistance of their lawyers the lawyer for either parent can commence an application in court and the judge will decide.
