From Cohabitation to Divorce

Date: Thursday, July 7, 2022
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

This webinar (hosted by a family lawyer) is a must-attend event for anyone with questions about Family Law in Ontario. Whether you are separated from your spouse and seeking a divorce, or entering into a common-law relationship and considering getting a domestic contract, this webinar will answer your questions.

Participants will learn about the 5 main topics in family law: decision-making (“custody”), parenting schedule (“access”), property division, child support and spousal support. Alternatives to court will also be discussed (e.g. separation agreements, mediation, collaborative practice, mediation-arbitration, court).

Below are some common topics that will be covered:

  • How long do you have to live with someone before you are considered common-law partners?
  • How long do separated parents need to pay child support?
  • Am I guaranteed spousal support if I leave my spouse?
  • Do married persons and common-law partners have the same rights?

After the presentation, participants will be able to ask anything they want to know about family law. Participants can use the MS Teams chat box during the webinar and/or send in their questions in advance to the host:
