There are only three reasons why a judge cannot grant a divorce alone (leaving support, property and other claims to separate orders that can be made later). Neither of those three reasons relates to whether both spouses want the divorce. Those two reasons are: Any children are not being adequately supported financially. If there are children involved, section 11(1) of the Divorce Act mandates that there be adequate provision for them in place before a divorce will be granted. What that means, in the light of the Child Support Guidelines, is that the support must be either ..read more

Financial Considerations You in Need to Think About As you Begin and End A Relationship In honor of Valentine’s day’s this month I am launching a 3-part series in support of making love last. Money is a common reason why happy couples decide to separate. I want to encourage more positive money conversations as individuals begin, commit to- and leave a relationship. At the end of the day positive money dialogue can often lead to more satisfying relationships. Even if the relationship doesn’t last- it can potentially reduce money conflicts as couples negotiate how they will divide assets th ..read more

One year post divorce, I can breathe and start to reflect on the last few years of anger and sadness.  Learning the truth about my husband and the double life he was living was extremely shocking and painful.  We tried to patch it up with therapy.  Of course, in the end, we all want what we can’t have, and my husband was devastated with my decision to end the marriage. To say the least, the Divorce was far from amicable. It’s amazing how so many men don’t think that they financially owe their partners anything.  I tried to amicably settle our situation s ..read more

My wife and I had been struggling with our marriage for the last 5 years.  We tried everything to save it and keep our family intact, but after years of marriage counselling with no change, we realized that we just couldn’t move forward in our marriage. There were 3 things that we did agree on…… 1. That divorce was inevitable.    2.  That we wanted the process to be completed as quickly and as stress free as possible.  3.  That we didn’t want to spend a crazy amount of money on lawyers fighting over our issues. A friend recommended that we cont ..read more

 I previously wrote in a blog about the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Michel v. Graydon, 2020 SCC 24 that a parent’s ability to make retroactive claims for child support is based on a child’s best interests and a parent’s obligation to provide timely financial disclosure, whereby Canada’s highest court held that parents must pay child support based on their income. If a parent does not do so, then the court can correct the issue by way of an order that reaches back in time and requires a parent to pay what ought to have been paid previously. However, the court was n ..read more

After 25 years together, I have called it quits. I am now trying to figure out if this was a Covid break up or was it coming? We met in University – got married shortly after and had 2 kids. We both are professionals and have great careers and are “hands on” parents. We have always prided ourselves on being “in sync” with our parenting styles and have both been truly committed to raising our family. As for our relationship, well it definitely had its moments and I won’t deny that finding time to be intimate and focus on just the two of us has been a challenge. But I think we both felt that thi ..read more
