Toronto family law lawyers practice family law and divorce law in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Toronto family law lawyers are members of the Law Society of Upper Canada.
The Law Society Referral Service is a very good way to find a Toronto lawyer who practices family law in Toronto and the surrounding region.
Each Toronto family law lawyer may have an office in Toronto or an office outside of Toronto, perhaps in the Greater Toronto area. The Greater Toronto Area includes Mississauga family law lawyers who practice in Toronto Family Courts, Oakville family law lawyers who practice in Toronto Family Courts, Brampton family law lawyers who practice in Toronto Family Courts, York Region family law lawyers (including Newmarket family law lawyers who practice in Toronto Family Courts, and Durham Region family law lawyers (including Pickering family law lawyers, Ajax family law lawyers, and Oshawa family law lawyers) who practice family law in Toronto Family Courts.
Each Toronto family law lawyer is a barrister, solicitor, and notary public. Toronto family law barristers are Toronto family law lawyers who go to Toronto and other family courts. Toronto solicitors are Toronto lawyers who don't usually go to Court but spend most of their time in their Toronto offices or working elsewhere in Toronto with Toronto family law clients.
Toronto family law lawyers act as Toronto solicitors when they draft separation agreements but act as Toronto barristers when they go to Toronto Family Court in Toronto child support applications, Toronto child custody applications, and in applications requesting that the Toronto Courts divide up property. In many ways Toronto divorce lawyers act as Toronto solicitors rather than Toronto barristers when they settle property issues in a separation agreement and draft and file divorce applications which don't require a custody, access, or support order. Toronto family law lawyers help their family law and divorce clients throughout Ontario.
Toronto courts serve Etobicoke, North York, and Scarborough. Toronto lawyers also attend court in Brampton courts, Oakville courts, Burlington courts, Milton courts, Orangeville courts, Newmarket courts, and Oshawa courts. There are many other courts in the greater Toronto Area.
Toronto lawyers who practice family law (Toronto family law lawyers) use federal legislation enacted by the Parliament of Canada respecting the law of divorce in Ontario and provincial legislation enacted by the Legislature of Ontario respecting family law property issues. If divorce litigation includes an application for child custody, spousal maintenance (spousal support), or child maintenance (child support) then Toronto family law lawyers will turn to the Divorce Act of Canada for guidance. If there is no divorce litigation pending, then Toronto family law lawyers will refer to Ontario statutes such as the Family Law Act.
