Family law governs the relationship between spouses, parents and their children as well as common law spouses, same-sex spouses and even multi-parent families.
Our lawyers have experience in helping clients resolve all separation and divorce matters in both married and common law relationships. These matters can include not only custody, access and support with respect to children, but the division of property and spousal support.
There are three different courts that deal with family law in the province of Ontario; here in Hamilton, most matters are dealt with at the Family Court of the Superior Court of Justice. These matters often include divorce, custody, access, division of property, adoption and child protection.
