Child Custody, Access and Support
At Doxtator Law we understand that making decisions involving your children can be extremely difficult. We will ensure that you understand your rights and obligations so that you will be fully informed in making any decisions related to child custody, access, or parenting plans. Child support is a separate issue from custody and access. Support amounts are determined based on income and number of children and can vary based on parenting time and special expenses for the child. Contact us to learn more.
The Children's Aid Society (CAS) is an entity of the Provincial Government that regulates the protection of children in Ontario. There are special considerations for First Nations Children whom are subject to child protection proceedings. We are aware of the gravity of the rights at stake in these cases and we ensure that our clients are fairly represented.
Marriage Contracts and Cohabitation Agreements
You can protect yourself from property and spousal support claims by entering into a marriage or cohabitation agreement. Agreements can cover ownership of the matrimonial, the division of property, spousal support, child custody and access, and child support. You cannot contract out of your child support obligations or your rights to exclusive possession of the matrimonial home. Book a consultation if you are interested in negotiating and drafting a marriage contract or cohabitation agreement.
Although our focus is to try to settle disputes in a fair and equitable matter outside of court, we understand that there are circumstances where this is not possible. In this case, we will establish your goals and expectations to ensure that you are heard and fairly represented. We're on your side.
