Toronto Family Lawyers Representing Clients in High Conflict Divorces

Separation and divorce rank among the most stressful events that someone can experience in their lifetime. The breakdown of a relationship is intensely emotional, exhausting, and full of uncertainty. It can be even more overwhelming where the process devolves into a high-conflict divorce due to the actions or maliciousness of your former spouse.

If you are involved in a high-conflict divorce, you need guidance and advice from a family lawyer who has dealt with such disputes before. A high-conflict divorce can be much more emotionally draining than a divorce where the parties are amicable and can result in much longer and more expensive dispute resolution and litigation.

At Baker & Company, our Toronto divorce lawyers have helped many clients through high-conflict divorces, providing them with a buffer against a malicious ex-spouse, granting them peace of mind, ensuring that their rights are protected, and working on making what is a challenging process much more efficient.

What is High Conflict Divorce? 

A high-conflict divorce often arises where one or both parties want to win at all costs, and do not want to cooperate, come to any sort of middle ground, or work towards a resolution that would be best for both parties (and their children).

Some hallmarks of a high-conflict divorce include:

  • Ongoing anger and resentment, and inability to move forward;
  • Inability to communicate calmly and rationally, or inability to communicate at all unless through a third party;
  • Contentious and ongoing disputes over financial aspects of separation including division of property, spousal support, and child support;
  • Contentious and ongoing disputes over custody and access to children, even when there is a parenting plan in place;
  • Badmouthing the other parent to the children;
  • Placing children in the middle of a dispute; and
  • Shaming or badmouthing the former spouse on social media.

At Baker & Company, our experienced and compassionate family lawyers help clients who find themselves in a challenging post-separation situation with an ex-spouse. We regularly provide forward-thinking legal advice and are not afraid to get tough in negotiations or in court, where needed.
