Fees are charged at $400.00 per hour plus HST.

Total legal fees depend on a variety of factors, such as:

  • Level of conflict between the parties
  • The resolution method used to resolve the dispute
  • Whether there are children involved (a parenting plan must be created)
  • The nature and extent of the assets and debts
  • The amount of financial information to exchange
  • Number of issues in dispute
  • Whether there are any unique legal issues
  • For common law couples, whether property issues are in dispute
  • Whether negotiations between the couple are amicable or challenging

Let’s have 15 minute phone conversation to see if we’re a good fit. I offer this free.

Alternatively, for a fee, I will provide a half an hour or one hour telephone or video consultation.
