Toronto Divorce and Separation Lawyers

Separation and Divorce Representation

In many cases, a divorce goes beyond the mere filing of documents and straightforward legal proceedings. In contested divorces, related legal matters are often at issue, including those pertaining to ownership of businesses, real estate and other valuable assets. In such situations, the lawyers at Polten & Associates focus on the use of protective legal strategies, including arrangements to prevent litigation, formulated to minimize our clients' short- and long-term vulnerability.

If your separation or divorce involves complex legal issues, it is crucial that you engage the counsel of a law firm that has substantial experience in the relevant practice areas.

Domestic and Cross-Border Ontario Divorce Lawyers

Our Toronto divorce and separation agreement lawyers handle a wide range of family law issues beyond uncontested divorce, including issues involving the division of property, spousal support and matters involving children.

We are also adept at handling cross-border litigation for which not only Ontario law but elements of the German legal system may be applicable. Our lawyers are fluent at a professional level in German and English and are supported by native German-speaking legal and administrative assistants, each of whom graduated from a German university and obtained valuable experience while working within the legal system in Germany. This enables us to efficiently and cost-effectively handle cross-border cases.

For individuals who have been divorced in Germany and want to remarry in Ontario, our lawyers can provide a letter of legal opinion, including a notarized translation of the divorce judgment. Such documentation is a precondition to obtaining authorization for issuance of a marriage license in the Province of Ontario.
