Many Ontario families experience divorce. The process of divorce, however, is rarely simple. Parents need the assistance of a family lawyer who can negotiate the best arrangements for the welfare of their children and the individual requirements of each parent. Separating spouses need an objective and rational assessment of their financial and personal needs following separation and divorce. When circumstances change and a divorce settlement requires revision, it takes an effective lawyer, such as Stephen A. Cooper, to renegotiate or to challenge an agreement in court.

These provincial laws provide a specific framework for custody, access, support, and property division claims.
