Family Law

Family law is a broad area of law that governs legal relationships between family members, including marriage, divorce, child custody, support, and property division.

At Marler Law Firm, we understand the importance of providing compassionate and effective legal representation in family law matters, as these cases can be emotionally charged and have a significant impact on our clients' lives.

Divorce is one of the most common areas of family law. In Ontario, couples can obtain a divorce if they have been separated for at least one year. During a divorce, a court will determine issues such as child custody, support, and property division. Our lawyers have extensive experience in guiding our clients through the divorce process and advocating for their interests, whether through negotiation or litigation.

Child custody and access is another important area of family law. When parents separate or divorce, they may have disagreements about where their children will live and how much time they will spend with each parent. Our lawyers have experience in negotiating and litigating child custody and access disputes, with a focus on promoting the best interests of the child.

Child support is another key issue in family law, and it is the legal obligation of a parent to provide financial support for their child. The amount of child support is determined by the Federal Child Support Guidelines and is based on the paying parent's income and the number of children. Our lawyers can assist with navigating the child support process and ensuring that our clients receive the appropriate amount of support.

Property division is also a significant issue in family law, particularly during a divorce. In Ontario, property acquired during a marriage is generally divided equally between the spouses. However, there are exceptions to this rule, and our lawyers can provide guidance on property division and help protect our clients' rights.

At Marler Law Firm, we understand that family law matters can be stressful and emotional. Our lawyers are committed to providing our clients with compassionate and effective legal representation, with a focus on achieving the best possible outcome for their unique situation. Whether through negotiation or litigation, we work closely with our clients to ensure that their interests are protected and their legal rights are upheld.
