HOW TO GET A DIVORCE IN QUEBEC?

Getting divorced can be a very difficult time in your life. We, at Alain Lessard attorneys, have a commitment to our clients to make the process as easy and painless as possible.

OUR STRENGTH

We will be there with you during the entire process of your legal proceedings. We will put all our efforts and knowledge to resolve your case as quickly and as efficiently as possible to minimize the emotional and financial impact of court proceedings on the entire family.

FIRST, WE NEED TO VERIFY IF YOU CAN GET DIVORCED IN QUEBEC?

As family lawyers, we highly recommend couples to come and see us before they decide to get married or move in together. There are so many issues we can avoid dealing with at the time of separation if the parties knew what they were doing from the beginning. We’ll be able to give you advice on your rights and obligations beforehand. You’ll know what you are getting into and you might avoid making very common mistakes that are often the cause of disputes at the time of separation.

A family lawyer will be able to tell you the differences between marriage and common law spouses. A family lawyer will inform you about ways to protect your assets before or during your union. A family lawyer will advise you of the legal regime in place at the time of marriage that will apply to you and your spouse automatically despite your wishes, if no marriage contract is in place. An hour of consultation with a family lawyer might be sufficient to avoid you a messy separation.

THEN, LET’S SEE IF WE CAN PROCEED BY A JOINT DIVORCE.

Book a consultation with one of our lawyers to help you understand your rights. We will explain to you in details what you’re entitled to before heading down the road to negotiate an amicable agreement. You will be armed with knowledge when you sit down with your spouse or before a mediator and discuss the accessory measures of your separation (child custody, child support, spousal support, partition of assets, family patrimony, debts, pension plans). We suggest you use our Joint Divorce Form - pdf to help you get through all points to be discussed.
