Family Lawyer in Ontario

Dealing with separation, divorce, or child custody can be some of the most stressful events of a person’s life. We work hard to make this experience easier by empowering our clients to make informed decisions. Our lawyers will guide you through the entire process with compassion and understanding, while still aggressively protecting their rights. At Axess Law, we make family law easier to understand and know that each case is unique. Our team of lawyers gives you expert guidance on matters such as a prenuptial agreement, separation, or divorce. Whether you are seeking independent advice on what options you have or need guidance on cohabitation, we are here to help.

Types of Family Law Services

Independent Legal Advice​

Get independent legal advice (ILA) when you cohabitate, separate, or divorce. A family law agreement can affect important rights like parenting, financial, or property rights. Our lawyers review your documents, explain the agreement, and advise you on whether it is safe to sign or not.

Foreign Divorce Opinion Letter​

Axess Law family lawyers have hands-on experience handling foreign divorce cases. When you marry outside Canada, your divorce will be subject to foreign laws. Axess Law provides you legal opinion letters that confirm you are legally divorced or verify a foreign marriage was annulled.

Uncontested Divorce​

Uncontested or simple divorces allow you to bring marital relationships to a close without spending long hours in court. Axess Law family lawyers understand that every divorce case is unique and provide tailored legal help to each. We start and respond to simple divorce applications, making it easier for you to go on with your life.

Domestic Agreement​

A domestic agreement is a formal, written agreement between two partners. It can state matters such as finance, child custody, or assets. Axess Law family lawyers meet you in person or online to discuss your relationship and draft domestic agreements to suit any family or financial circumstances.

  • Better protect families from family violence, threats, or coercion.
