Divorce Lawyers Brampton
When a spousal relationship breaks down, divorce is one of the options available for couples who wish to end their relationship. Divorces can either be Uncontested or Contested.
An uncontested divorce means only a divorce claim is filed in court. Therefore, no claim for child custody, child support, spousal support or division of property is filed. You can also file a joint uncontested divorce if you and your ex wish to apply together. A contested divorce means both parties do not agree on all issues, such as custody, child support, spousal support, division of property, matrimonial home and much more. At Brace Law our experienced legal team can guide you through this process.
Although a divorce is not mandatory, couples may also choose to separate and enter into a separation agreement. It is only necessary if one of the individuals would like to re-marry, at which point he or she must get a formal divorce judgment—and a final certificate verifying it—from the court. If you have a contested matter, then you want to make sure you arrange a meeting with our experienced family lawyers in Brampton to learn more about your options.
Separation Lawyers Brampton
Separation is another option instead of divorce. A separation is when you both decide to end the relationship without applying to the court for approval. Separation agreements allow two spouses to live “separate and apart” from the other without legally ending their marriage. They may choose to live in separate homes, but it’s not required in order to be legally separated.
You may choose to draft an informal agreement or retain Brace Law to draft a final separation agreement. A final separation agreement may include specific arrangements related to child custody and access, child support, spousal support and division of property and assets. Brace Law will come to a solution that best protects your rights and interests. Click here to speak with our experienced family lawyers in Brampton to learn more about separations and your options.
Family Lawyers Brampton
Spousal support is the money paid by one spouse to another after a separation or divorce. It is sometimes called “alimony” or “maintenance.” Spousal support is usually paid on a monthly basis, but it can be paid as a lump sum. Spousal support obligations arise out of marriages as well as common-law relationships and same-sex relationships. Section 33 of the Family Law Act (FLA) and Section 15 of the Divorce Act (DA) give the court the authority to order a person to provide support for his or her dependents and determine the amount of spousal support in Ontario, Canada.
Only individuals who are married may apply for spousal support under the DA. Individuals who are both married and common law may apply for spousal support under the FLA.
This area of law is complex and may be difficult for you to navigate without legal representation. Brace Law will help guide you through the process of your divorce or separation and help you understand your obligations or entitlement to spousal support.

Domestic Contracts & Negotiations Lawyers
A domestic contract is an agreement that sets out specific terms in a relationship. There are different kinds of domestic arrangements that are recognized under the Family Law Act, such as cohabitation agreements and marriage agreements.
A cohabitation agreement is set up to protect a couple financially if the couple chooses to live together without being married. The deal, among other matters, usually sets out the spouses’ ownership and/or division of property and their support obligations. Cohabitation agreements cannot determine the rights of custody or access to children.
In Ontario, a marriage contract is commonly referred to as a “prenuptial agreement” (or “prenup”). It can be prepared either for two people who are married to one another or intend to marry one another. A prenup agreement is limited to addressing the following: Ownership and division of property; Child Support; Spousal Support; and the right to direct the education and moral upbringing of children.
It is essential to obtain legal representation that understands the law surrounding domestic contracts and can explain the legal obligations of a valid domestic contract. At Brace Law, our experienced legal team is committed to helping you understand your legal requirements and the process of negotiating and drafting domestic contracts.
