Lawyer For Contested And Uncontested Divorces

In Ontario, divorce may be contested or uncontested. Grounds for a divorce application are found in the federal Divorce Act. Most couples demonstrate that their relationship has broken down on the basis of a one-year separation. Even if both spouses agree that a divorce is necessary or inevitable, there are issues that must be resolved before a divorce is granted.

At Reddington & White, our lawyer has been providing divorce services in Mississauga for more than 25 years. With his knowledge of family law, he and our team are able to provide procedural options for divorce regardless of the level of animosity between you and your spouse. Often, former couples are able to settle the divorce in a private and nonadversarial manner, meeting their own best interests and those of their children.

Process Options In Divorce

When applying for an uncontested divorce, spouses must resolve issues related to children and property division. If co-parenting and child custody arrangements have not been made, a court is unlikely to grant an uncontested divorce. Still, spouses do not need to litigate their issues. Even if they are far apart, they can nonetheless come to an enforceable separation agreement through mediation.

At Reddington & White, we are always prepared to go to court if a divorce must be litigated. In a contested divorce, where a final settlement may be imposed by the court, our lawyer works diligently to represent client interests. In all forums, Reddington & White puts the needs and legal interests of its clients first.
