Toronto Child Custody Law Firm

Canadian-German Family Lawyer

In a world shrinking due to globalization, more and more individuals and families need family law representation that spans international borders. At  Polten & Associates in Toronto, our international educational and legal background along with our fluency in English and German enables us to provide clients in Canada and German-speaking Europe with skilled representation in the areas of child custody, access and support.

Our lawyers have experience and expertise in solving cross-border family law problems and have access to our firm's network of contacts with law firms and legal practitioners across Canada and German-speaking Europe, including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Key members of our professional network include notaries, lawyers and judges who participated in our highly regarded mentoring program during the past two decades and who now occupy a broad range of responsible positions throughout Germany's legal system. Moreover, as native German speakers who were educated at German universities, our legal and administrative assistants offer superior command of the German language.

We work closely with our clients in these cases, striving to optimize the best interests of parents and children in situations involving:

  • Child custody
  • Parental access
  • Child support
  • Child paternity
  • Child abduction

In addition, we provide preventative legal counsel designed to minimize our clients' exposure to potentially negative repercussions that may arise from related issues, such as need for enforcement of child support or of spousal support, which, in turn, can have an impact on the legal and financial well-being of parents.
