Separation And Divorce

The decision to end a marriage relationship is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make. At this stressful and often confusing time, many questions arise surrounding the divorce and separation process. At Kain & Ball, our experienced team of legal professionals will guide you through the separation and divorce process, answering your questions and doing our best to make this transition into the next phase of your life a smooth one.

Why You Need an Experienced Divorce Lawyer

There is one ground for divorce in Canada: marriage breakdown. Marriage breakdown can be evidenced by the spouses’ separation for at least one year, by cruelty, or by adultery. Most divorces are granted on the basis of the one year separation. The separation period can begin to run as soon as the spouses no longer reside together with no possibility of reconciliation. It is not necessary to have a separation agreement or “legal separation” for a year prior to commencing a divorce application.
In some cases, separation can occur while the spouses remain under the same roof. Spouses are considered to be living “separate and apart” while they are residing in the same home, provided that they (or at least one of them) has formed the clear intention not to live together. This type of separation can be one of the most difficult to navigate, and as such, it is paramount that you have the very best advice from a lawyer that you can trust to assist you. The lawyers at Kain & Ball Family Law have extensive experience dealing with parties who are separated and living in the same home. We understand the issues that can arise out of such situations and are at the ready with effective advice and solutions to ensure that your rights are protected.

It is also possible to end a marriage relationship without actually obtaining a formal divorce. Many couples decide that it is sufficient to separate, and settle the issues between them on a final basis using a separation agreement. However, should one of the parties decide that he or she would like to re-marry, then it is necessary to obtain a formal divorce.

Our satisfied clients

"I was very impressed at all times with the services provided by Kain & Ball…"

ClientVery Impressed

"A very professional firm with a proven balance of “downtown prestige” “uptown convenience and
personal service” and “hometown compassion”."

ClientVery Professional

"…There is [a quote] that I often read which I believe Anita exemplifies in all that she does, and from what I have experienced in the past year, it is infused throughout every aspect of your office and each member of the team carries this same motto inherently in how you engage with your clients, and each other... whether dealing with the financial, bureaucratic or emotional content, there is humanity in all that you do. I am grateful to each and every one of you. “To be the best we can is our sacred human responsibility” - Albert Einstein "

ClientBest Experience

"I always felt like you heard me, and I am so thankful."

ClientThankful

"Anita and her very professional team were always compassionate-- their effective approach focuses on the human element first—“family-children-people”. [The priority] first and foremost at Kain & Ball [is] the client: respecting specific needs during a sensitive and important transition time in one’s life."

ClientCompassionate Team

"…No doubt you see some pretty nasty things in this business, and yet you never seem to let this cloud your commitment to treating each client with respect and individuality for their own specific circumstance."

ClientTreated With Respect

“Ms. Kain and her team were unbelievably helpful through a very difficult time. I always felt that they had my best interest at the forefront, and gave excellent advice accordingly. Their continued familiarity with my case was always surprising to me, given that I am far from their only client. This certainly made me feel that my case was a priority and of importance. Ms. Kain's expertise and commitment to her clients is unparalleled and I would recommend her and her team of professionals in a heartbeat.”

ClientUnbelievably Helpful

"Given the nature of family law, when people come to your office they are vulnerable and in a state of flux. For me, your entire team came together to help me navigate an extremely challenging and emotionally charged ordeal with insight and clarity. What has been most poignant for me is not merely the level of expertise offered by your office, but far more importantly, the compassion, integrity and care with which every single detail is carried out. No matter how busy you are, you always show tremendous respect for the fact that you are dealing with human beings... and while you for each of you this is your job, you recognize almost intrinsically that for us, as your clients, this is our life."

ClientFocused On Every Single Detail

"In my occupation as a medical professional, my role is to help people who are often in the most difficult situation of their lives. When I needed legal help from a family law expert at a truly difficult time in my life, Anita Kain and her team were there for me in a similar way. I will be forever grateful for their professional, thorough and compassionate assistance in successfully navigating what can be a frustrating and trying process. I cannot recommend them highly enough."

ClientHighly Recommended

"I was amazed at the rapid response rate of the team... honestly, there are not many people (or offices) that have such a quick turn-around time for ongoing questions of their clients. And I know how busy you all are, though you never once made me feel like you were too busy to attend to my questions; in fact, you made me feel as if I was your only client in each and every one of our interactions. For such a large team, that is truly remarkable."

ClientRapid Response

"It is so evident to me that every single person at Kain Family Law works with passion, and a true commitment to be the best they can be to their clients."

ClientPassionate

"I have known Anita for over 30 years now, her professionalism, her tenacity and her caring for her clients are simply the best… 3 years ago, I had the opportunity to use Anita’s services and they were second to none."

ClientSimply The Best

"I am so flooded with gratitude, not for the outcome (and not for the knowledge I have earned about the legal system... which I hope to never need to use again), but for the process we took to get there, that I could write a novel attempting to express my gratitude... but the words would undoubtedly get redundant."
