Family Law – Toronto Family Lawyers
When it comes to family law, you are in good hands with the Toronto family lawyers at Devry Smith Frank LLP.
People who need family lawyers are different from people who need other types of lawyers. If you are going through a separation or divorce, or if you need help with child custody or access, child support or spousal support, or a children’s aid society issue, your case is about your life. Or, if you are about to get married or start living with someone, you may have concerns about your future life.
If you are concerned about how a child is being treated at school, by a children’s aid society or some other institution, your feelings for that child can be overwhelming. How can you get that child the best help?
For separating spouses, money can also be an important issue. How can you ensure that you have the financial stability you need to move on with your life.
We can help you. See the other tabs on the left for some starting points on this website.
Our Family Law team regularly contributes to the DSF Blog, see their posts at Family Law Blogs.
We have represented clients before every level of court from the Ontario Court of Justice to the Supreme Court of Canada. We have also helped my clients negotiate settlements, attended at mediations and arbitrations. Our family lawyers are also adept at advocating for clients while keeping them out of court using family mediation and arbitration as appropriate. We also practice “Collaborative Practice”, which helps spouses with difficult situations, but who are committing to resolving matters without “wrecking the kids.” Our family lawyers also help people who are getting married, or planning to live together, plan for their future life through a marriage contract, prenuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement.
We devote extra energy to helping kids in difficult circumstances. We have successfully advocated to protect children in several ground breaking court decisions and court cases, showing that our lawyers are not only experts in complex financial matters. Some of these interesting topics and many others are covered in our podcasts page recorded by John Schuman.
Our lawyers are very often guest speakers at the various events, commercials and shows. You can access their videos by visiting our media page.
