How to Have an

Amicable Separation

We cannot begin to articulate the importance of an amicable separation!  Let’s keep it simple…  There are lots of professionals within a very broken, Ontario family law system that will gladly jump in to assist you with your divorce drama.  But have no doubt that all that acrimony is going to cost you money.  Real tangible dollars and cents that you worked hard to earn. 

Acrimony is going to drag out your file… I mean drag it out by months (maybe), years (likely).  That acrimony is going to steal your soul.  This means that if you want to get though your divorce with any kind of humanity at the end… you have to figure out how to separate as amicably as possible.

AMICABLE SEPARATION IS CHEAPER!

If you take your divorce to court, it’s going to be EXPENSIVE! An amicable divorce Ontario can cost you up to 75% less than a contested divorce (where you end up in court).

The more contested your divorce, the more professionals will need to be involved in making the final decisions – thereby driving up the cost and reducing the amount of control you’re going to have in the final decision. If you choose a contested divorce, someone else is going to make the final decision for you – The Judge. That’s the last thing you want. If you can work out an agreement with your partner then you can come to a final arrangement that you can both live with.

AMICABLE SEPARATION DOES NOT MEAN YOU NEED TO GET ALONG.

An amicable divorce does not even mean that you need to agree.  Remember, the objective of a separation is to come to an agreement that sticks.  An amicable divorce means getting there without spending money you don’t have, without destroying your children and with the hope of a better future in front of you.

AMICABLE DIVORCE OR BITTER DIVORCE

Having a bitter divorce isn’t going to turn anybody into a better person. Bitterness now evokes bitterness later and if you need to have an ongoing relationship with your Ex – for example, you have children together, then you definitely want to have an amicable divorce. Remember, you can divorce a spouse, but you can never divorce a bitter, angry ex-spouse. You’re stuck with them for life.

AMICABLE SEPARATION AND FAMILY MEDIATION

Amicable divorce and family mediation go hand in hand.  Sure you can hire a litigation lawyer to fight on your behalf, but understand that you are hiring someone to wrestle with your spouse’s lawyer on your behalf… and on your dime.  Amicable divorce means that you keep a measure of control and you ensure that it doesn’t get out of hand.  If you are looking for an amicable divorce… you need to seriously consider mediation.
