Frequently Asked Questions

Here is the answer's , what people frequently ask us

Family Law FAQs

Can I represent myself in Family Court?

Yes, you may represent yourself. However, some cases are complex and require extensive legal knowledge. People are always encouraged to seek the advice of a lawyer

If a family law case is brought against me, what do I do?

If you are served with an Originating Application you should file a Response with the Court within 30 days. If you do not file a Response, an order may be made against you in your absence. A Response is a form you complete to reply to an Originating Application and should address the claims made against you and state clearly the reason you are defending the action.

My friend says I need a "legal separation". Is there such a thing?

No, there is no such thing as a 'legal separation'. Separation occurs when a couple, married or common law, no longer lives together as a couple. You become legally separated as soon as you and spouse/partner start living "separate and apart" from each other with the intention of separating. However, you can obtain a separation agreement, with the aid of a lawyer.

What is the difference between separation and divorce?

Separation occurs when a couple, married or common-law, no longer lives together as a couple. You do not have to see a lawyer, go to court, or have a 'legal separation' to be legally separated. You do not need the consent of your spouse or partner to start living separately. You are considered legally separated as soon as you and your spouse/partner start living 'separate and apart' from each other with the intention of separating. Divorce is the legal end of a marriage. It does not end all of the obligations between spouses. It simply ends the legal relationship that was created when two people were married.

Can I terminate visitation if I am not receiving child support?

Access is a separate issue from child support. You cannot deny access to a parent that fails to pay support; similarly, you cannot stop support payments if you are denied access. A parent who denies access or support may be seen as acting against the best interests of the child.

How do I know how much support I should be paying or receiving?

The amount of child support is determined by the federal Child Support Guidelines for each province. These are set amounts based on the payor's income, province where the payor lives, the number of children, and the residency of the children..

Business Law FAQs

What is business law?

Running your own business demands a lot of perseverance and determination. This often leaves little time to deal with the legal issues that constantly permeate running small businesses. Having a business law attorney on your side can make a big difference in the day-to-day operations of your business, helping you deal with a wide range of issues related to:

  • Taxes
  • Finance
  • Business formations
  • Acquisitions and mergers
  • Employment/labor laws
  • Contract negotiations; and Litigation

What does it mean to "pierce the corporate veil?

A key reason that business owners choose to form a separate business entity is so they won't be held personally liable for business liabilities. However, courts will sometimes hold a business's owners, members, and shareholders personally liable. When this happens it's called "piercing the corporate veil.".

What is a non-profit corporation?

When it comes to your business structure you might need to think about organizing your venture as a nonprofit corporation. Unlike a for-profit business, a nonprofit may be eligible for certain benefits, such as sales, property and income tax exemptions at the state level. The IRS points out that while most federal tax-exempt organizations are nonprofit organizations, organizing as a nonprofit at the state level doesn't automatically grant you an exemption from federal income tax.

How often should a business hold meetings and update its minutes?

If a business entity undertakes a major change or transaction, then it should be reflected in its minutes. Moreover, the company may want to hold meetings of the shareholders or members, and directors or officers should take place at least annually. Failure to adhere to the formality of regular meetings can jeopardize the business's ability to shield its officers, directors and shareholders or members from personal liability for the corporation's actions.

Is it a good idea to have a Buy-Sell Agreement??

In today's business climate, businesses cannot afford to make mistakes. Yet there is one legal mistake that many small and medium-size businesses often make – they don't have a buy-sell agreement in place. This can create several big issues. For example: 1) without an agreement in place, a business owner may wake up one morning to find out that a stranger owns part of his business; 2) an owner that is getting ready to retire may find out that he can't force his company to buy his stock; 3) and perhaps most troubling, the majority owner of a company who wants to sell his or her business may find out the sale is vetoed by his minority shareholders.

What does involved in a corporate merger?

Like most corporate law, mergers are regulated at the state level. While these laws vary by jurisdiction, many aspects of the merger process are the same across the nation. Generally, the board of directors for each entity must initially approve a resolution adopting a plan of merger that specifies the names of the entities involved, the name of the proposed merged company, the manner of converting shares of both entities, and any other legal provisions to which the corporations agree. Each entity notifies all of its shareholders that a meeting will be held to approve the merger. If the proper number of shareholders approves the plan, the directors sign the papers and file them with the state. The secretary of state issues a certificate of merger to authorize the new corporation.
