Whether it involves the beginning or the end of a relationship, family law matters must be treated with tact and sensitivity.

A negotiated settlement is the most ideal way to resolve family disputes, since it is quick and cost-effective. The Law Offices of Arman Hoque can negotiate a settlement on your behalf.

Some of our areas of practice include:
Under Ontario law, there is no such thing as a “legal” separation; if one person in the marriage wants to be considered separate, they are both considered “separated,” even when residing under the same roof.
To obtain a divorce in the province, you or your spouse must have primarily lived in Ontario for at least one whole year before completing an application for divorce. While each divorce case is unique, most fall under the category of “irreconcilable differences,” wherein the couple has been separated for at least one year and there is no possibility of reconciliation. Before a divorce can be granted, the court will require that all reasonable arrangements have been conducted regarding child support. This often requires parties having previously completed a separation agreement.
Child custody can be seen as your legal right to be involved in the upbringing of your child (or children). This is often confused with child access, which is simply the right to see your child (or children). Some of the most common types of child custody include:
Under Ontario law, each parent is obligated to assist their child financially. In its intent, child support should be used to assist the parent with whom the child primarily resides and is involved in the day-to-day activities of the child.
