Not every situation can be dealt with in Mediation or perhaps your spouse is unwilling to consider Mediation or Collaborative Mediation.

We created our Lawyer Led-Negotiation Program for such individuals that come to us as half of a couple and who require the assistance of a negotiating lawyer who will represent their specific interests because their spouse has chosen another legal process.

The Common Sense Divorce Works!

Concerned that your situation is too complicated, too acrimonious or that you and your spouse are not able to work together?  The Common Sense Divorce offers numerous processes to assist even the most difficult files.

How Much Does It Cost To Separate in Ontario?

Nobody is going to be able to predict right down to the penny how much its going to cost for you to separate... that ultimately comes down to you and your spouse. Still according to current research, the cost of an average divorce in Ontario is coming in at just under $27,000. DID THAT JUST SCARE YOU? It should! And unfortunately, nobody goes into a divorce planning to spend that kind of money (who has that kind of money??!)


The one's who spend this kind of money are the ones WHO DO NOT PLAN TO NOT SPEND THAT KIND OF MONEY! They lawyer up from day one and they threaten court. They are the ones who are avoidant or conversely they escalate matters unnecessarily. And more than anything else, they do not create their Separation Agreements properly, right from the beginning.

The cost of your divorce is going to be a combination of the following factors:
1) The level of acrimony and hostility between you and your spouse.
2) The willingness of you and your spouse to work together.
3) The Legal Process that you both choose to negotiate your Separation Agreement.
4) The amount and the complexity of your financial and property issues.
5) The extent that you include lawyers to assist you.
