Divorce Lawyers Vaughan
When a married relationship breaks down, divorce is one of the options available for couples who wish to end their relationship. A divorce is not mandatory; couples may also choose to separate and enter 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. In addition to going through the legal process of a divorce, we also understand the emotional turmoil caused by the personal aspect and can guide you through this process.

Separation Lawyers Vaughan
If there has been a breakdown in a married relationship, separation is another option instead of divorce. A separation is when you decide to end the relationship without applying to the court for approval. You may draft an informal agreement or retain Brace Law to prepare a final separation agreement that may include specific arrangements related to child custody and access, child support, spousal support, and division of property and assets.

Family Lawyers Vaughan
Spousal support is the money paid by one spouse to another after a separation or divorce. Spousal support obligations arise out of marriages, 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. Both married and common-law individuals 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. Our goal at Brace Law is to guide you through the process of your divorce or separation and help you understand your entitlement to or obligations for spousal support.

Domestic Contracts & Negotiations Lawyers
A domestic contract is an agreement that sets out specific terms in a relationship. Different kinds of domestic arrangements 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 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, we are committed to helping you understand your legal requirements and the process of negotiating and drafting domestic agreements.
