Stoner & Company Family Law

Stoner & Company helps clients resolve all family law matters, including both married and common law relationships. We are committed to achieving the most favourable results possible for you through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and, when necessary, litigation.

There are several ways to adopt in Ontario, including adoptions by a relative or family member, public adoptions through Children’s Aid Societies, private adoptions or agency and international adoptions. The Family Law Lawyers at Stoner & Company can guide you through the adoption process.

Family Law disputes can often be settled without going to court. We make every attempt to settle matters through negotiation, mediation, arbitration or collaborative family law before resorting to court. If litigation is necessary, we are experienced, expert and determined courtroom lawyers.

The amount of child support payable is determined by the Child Support Guidelines, including regular monthly child support and contributions to special and extraordinary expenses. To understand your responsibilities and rights, contact Stoner & Company’s Family Law Lawyers.

Parents who are separated must make arrangements for their children, including decision-making and time-sharing schedules. It’s important to always put the child’s best interests first. Our Family Law Lawyers are experienced and expert advocates for your child custody and access rights.

Collaborative Family Law allows parties to resolve their divorce without going to court, and is focused on cooperation, not confrontation. Stoner & Company’s collaboratively trained lawyers will provide the guidance and support you need to attain a lasting collaborative divorce or collaborative separation agreement that benefits all parties.

If you’re considering a divorce, you may be feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and wondering where to start. Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, Stoner & Company’s experienced Family Law Lawyers can review the process with you and ensure your divorce is obtained at a reasonable cost.

It’s important to obtain legal advice before entering into a Marriage Contract or Cohabitation Agreement. If not drafted properly it may be set aside by a court, or you could be held to an agreement that does not protect your rights or is unduly onerous. Ask our Family Law Lawyers for advice.

The division of assets is determined by provisions in the Family Law Act. Understanding how these provisions work is essential to a fair and legal sharing of assets. That requires dedication and focus. Stoner & Company’s team of Family Law Lawyers are experienced, knowledgeable, and here to help.

A Separation Agreement is a domestic contract that can include arrangements regarding child custody and access, child support, spousal support, and division of property and assets for married and unmarried partners. Our Family Law Lawyers can help you understand and protect your rights.

There are many factors taken into consideration when calculating the amount and duration of spousal support. The income, assets, and needs of both parties are a few of the variables that are considered. Contact our Family Law Lawyers to ensure you meet your obligations and protect your rights.

You may require a document from your child’s other parent if you are traveling out of the country with children under 18 but without all of their custodial parents or guardians. We can prepare your Travel Consent letter/Statutory Declaration in order to avoid unnecessary complications or delays.

We understand retaining a Family Law Lawyer can be expensive. That’s why we offer unbundled legal services, including limited scope retainer coaching and consultation to self-represented parties. We can help with coaching for a court appearance, mediation, one-time advice or ongoing consultation.
