Family Law

A divorce or spousal separation can be one of the most difficult trials that you will ever face. The path to recovery is fraught with uncertainty. A family court action can have a serious and long-lasting impact on your children, your health, and your financial well-being.

Whether by negotiating a fair and binding separation agreement, arguing before the Court, or by providing advice before separation, Milne Law is here to fight for you. Milne Law handles the entire range of family court matters including complex divorces, custody and access disputes, inter-spousal agreements, and Child and Family Services Act matters.

We will guide you every step of the way, ensuring that you receive the personal attention and practical expertise necessary to get to your best legal outcome. With our extensive experience in highly complicated and contested family law matters, we understand what you are going through and will offer straightforward, practical legal advice tailored to fit your needs. It is our objective at Milne Law to make you feel in control of your family matter and your life.

Think that you want to go it alone, or that hiring a lawyer is too expensive? You should think carefully before representing yourself. In our courts, self-represented litigants are at risk of suffering from their lack of legal knowledge and inexperience with the legal system. You may not receive what you are legally entitled to. In some circumstances you can even be ordered to pay some or all of your spouse’s legal costs if you are unsuccessful, or if your failure to follow the Rules of Court is found to prejudice your spouse.

Still want to represent yourself? Milne Law is willing to offer behind-the-scenes legal advice and “unbundled” legal services to assist you in managing your family court action. Want to represent yourself in court, but also want some advice on how to draft your affidavit, notice of motion, or financial statement? We are here for you.
