Christian Divorce in Toronto

christian divorce

Divorce Firms do not affiliate with any specific faith group or religious organization but can be sensitive to your unique situation and needs.

Statistical findings tell us  that unfortunately faith and religion itself cannot insulate people from the stresses that pull at the fabric of all our marriages.  But faith can help us to face our realities and help us start our new lives.

Statistically divorce is very much a reality for people of faith, and comparable in number to the amounts of people who do not practice your faith.  Yes… there are as many Catholics, Baptists, Pentecostals and Mormons divorcing as there is anyone else.  What may be unique to Christians, is that for people of faith, Christian divorce often comes with added stigma that can be very difficult if not confusing.  Often there are theological difficulties, family and community expectations, all mixed in with personal religious views that are all being directly challenged, if not assaulted. For many, Christian divorce, can be a crisis of faith.

For organizations that deal with christian divorce, by default they also have to wade through these extra challenges that faith can bring to the divorce process and are even sometimes expected to help people answer many of these difficult questions.  The reality remains that many of these challenges cannot be answered by those that are assisting you with legal processes… and will remain as challenges that will have to be dealt with through personal reflection, perhaps with the assistance of your clergy or through counseling of your choice.

ROLES: MARRIAGE COUNSELOR OR DIVORCE FIRM?

When Christians divorce, often there is confusion about the role of the individuals retained to assist the couple. To the point, is the professional retained, as a “Reconcilers of marriages” or are they a service that assists people to end their marriage?  It is difficult if not impossible to be both.  To be practically helpful and in fairness to both spouses, organizations that directly address divorce must offer clarity on both their role and their process and clearly define the limitations of what they are being retained to deal with. 

When you retain a divorce service, they are not marriage counselors and there is an inherent assumption that you have already considered marriage counseling, spoken with your church and taken the time to process your decision.  Regardless, credible family mediators will always make sure that you have considered these options before moving forward and ensure that you understand the steps you are taking.  It is for this reason that of the many that approach separation services, there is a notable amount that end up reconciling.
