Scarborough Family Law Solutions

Long before divorces, our roots reaches back to our core years in the financial industry. Seemed like every day we were hearing stories of separating families spending tens and tens of thousands of dollars to be led through legal divorce processes that left them emotionally broken, mentally defeated and financially destroyed. Surely there had to be a better divorce?

Our founders, along with financial TV personality Gail Vaz-Oxlade started asking how do we take a process that can be so fundamentally destructive and somehow make a better divorce?  We put our heads together and started investigating, researching and talking to other financial experts, lawyers, mediators, therapists and social workers. By 2009 The Common Sense Divorce was created.It’s not usually legalities that cause the drama. It’s almost always the money. We understand money! That’s why we’re really good at understanding splitting up.

We know a better divorce. We know how to empower people in the middle of life’s challenges. How to reach new goals and find fuller potential. We’re all about our clients.  We create solutions and we prepare our clients for new futures. 

Let’s not sugarcoat it! Divorce is difficult work and there are days when work can be really, really hard. But our team is special.

Our core values of wisdom, experience, quality, integrity, common sense, balance, care, empathy and yes, even kindness are lived by our team every day. Our values lie at the heart of our unique company culture.
