Family Law: The Most Personal Area of Law

Family Law involves every matter in which the legal system intersects with family relationships. This often involves the legal aspects of separation and divorce. This includes child protection (CAS), Adoptions, paternity issues and DNA testing.

Clients dealing with family breakdown are understandably going through a difficult stage of their lives. The pain and anxiety of separation and divorce can be intense. The last thing people need is the additional stress and pressure from the legal system.

The Family Law Lawyers at Creighton Law LLP practice Family Law with compassion and empathy. We give our clients skilled legal assistance in all forums of dispute resolution including negotiation, Mediation, Arbitration and litigation.

These disputes often involve parties who must continue to deal with each other long after their dispute is resolved. We always remain aware of this fact.

Guiding You Through Ontario's Family Law System

We can assist you in a variety of areas, including:

  • Paternity: Whether you are wishing to establish or rule out paternity, we can discuss its legal implications and the rights of fathers, mothers and their children.
  • Domestic Contracts: Whether you need a Cohabitation Agreement, Prenuptial Agreement, Marriage Contract, Separation Agreement or other Family Law Contract, we will ensure that your Contract is clear and your rights are protected.
  • Separation and Divorce: We will help you with all aspects of your separation, including Custody and Access to your children, division of property, and Support from or for your spouse and children.
  • Child Protection: Some of our work in this area requires working with the criminal law practice at our firm. Any allegations of child abuse or child neglect have the potential to affect both our client's freedom and the integrity of the family. These cases often bring agencies, such as the Children's Aid Society, into contact with your family on a long-term basis.
  • Adoption: A number of legal aspects need to be addressed when new members join your family. We will guide you through the process to ensure that your Adoption proceeds successfully.
