Going through a separation can be an emotional and stressful experience. It is important that you speak to an experienced family/separation lawyer who can guide you through the entire process and empower you with the knowledge you need to ensure you make informed decisions for you and your family’s future.
Although separation is not defined under the Family Law Act, the Courts generally consider separation as:
- Either or both parties forming an intent to end the relationship,
- Either or both parties communicating to the other that the relationship has come to an end, and
- Each party thereafter leading a separate and independent life from the other.
