Why Choose Help for Divorce?

Going through a separation will most likely be the most stressful time of your life. It can be extremely overwhelming, expensive and time consuming. We know how emotionally draining it can be and we know how it can affect the whole family.

Our mission is to keep families OUT OF COURT! We have realized over the years that people are frustrated with the traditional court system, they want better alternatives to the lawyer-led, courtroom divorce.

Many couples today want to decide the terms of their separation in the comfort of their own home. They are amicable enough to discuss what is in the best interest of their family and they don’t want to take time off work to attend long, drawn out, appointments or spend thousands of dollars in unnecessary legal fees.

Testimonials

My husband and I were quite amicable and wanted to draft our own Separation Agreement. We were a little concerned about missing important information that may have been an issue in the future. Help for Divorce helped us by taking the information we provided and creating an Agreement for us. They included information we would never have thought about including. Thanks to your team for making this an easy process and creating an Agreement for us.

Rachel D.London, Ontario

We recently applied for a divorce and the court did not approve it because we were missing information in our Agreement. The judge said our application needed to include a parenting plan. We contacted Help for Divorce and they quickly created a professional document for us to re-submit to the court. Because of the additional information they added to our agreement, our divorce was approved. Thank you, Help for Divorce for providing this service.

Jacqueline R.  Toronto, Ontario

Well the term “you don’t know what you don’t know” is certainly true. My wife and I drafted our own Separation Agreement and asked Help for Divorce for their expertise to finalize our documents. After everything was drafted, we were surprised by how much we had missed in our own Agreement. We mistakenly thought we could do it on our own. If we had not contacted Help for Divorce to assist us, it would have cost us a lot of time and trouble in the future. Thank you, Help for Divorce for all your input and for guiding us through this process.

    Disclaimer:

    The information included in the Separation Agreement, or other applicable documents, is purely a guide and cannot substitute for a lawyer’s skill, knowledge, and experience. These documents are simply reflective of the information received from you and are an administrative service only. Help for Divorce® does not warrant and is not liable or responsible for ensuring the validity and/or enforceability of any Agreement or clause in an Agreement and remains your full and sole responsibility.

    Full financial disclosure is a crucial element in the preparation of any Separation Agreement, as such failure to disclose full financial information may be grounds for a Court to set aside the Separation Agreement. It is also critical that you understand your rights and obligations under existing law. In many circumstances, the Agreement will be addressing complex assets and issues, such as corporations, trusts, pensions, tax implications etc. In these cases, it is imperative that the actual relevant documentation be reviewed and that the expertise of an accountant or specialist in the subject area be consulted to ensure that the Agreement properly addresses these complex assets and issues.

    It is strongly recommended that you retain Independent Legal Advice before signing any documentation arising out of the end of your marriage or common law relationship.
