Information that are missed can trigger complications later. This is valid, no doubt, when setting up a separation agreement. It is important to pay attention to details, no matter how minute it seems.


The last move in terminating your marriage is divorce. A Divorce Decree terminates one’s legal standing as a “spouse”. This does not solve all the other difficulties that come from the spouse or partner as a result of a separation.


If an arrangement is not practicable, one partner can appeal to the court to ask the court to rule on matters that the spouses cannot agree on. This grants the judge discretion and authority over decisions with respect to the children. If secrecy is required, decisions can be made by a Family Law Arbitrator who may enforce conditions that all parties may abide by. All sides must agree to a Family Arbitration process.

How to be Legally Separated with the help of a Filipino Lawyer in Toronto


When people want to separate legally, they mostly ask when does separation take place and what is the official, legal declaration or procedure that will show that the marriage has ended?


Legal separation happens as one partner communicates to the other that they no longer want to be the spouse of the other and that there is no fair hope of reconciliation. In all matters relating to family law, the date of separation is relevant. It concerns a variety of issues and whether a divorce order will be granted.


The formal mechanism used to settle the disputes does not set the date of separation, although a letter from a legal counsel or a court application will usually establish the date of separation. The definitive disposition of the issues can be reflected in a settlement arrangement or a decision of the Court. The settlement arrangement governs the responsibilities and duties resulting from the dissolution of the relationship.
