Divorce, Mediation, and More

At Gittens & Associates, our divorce lawyers understand that every family, marriage, and situation is different. That’s why we focus on your individual needs every step of the way. If you and your spouse are interested in resolving your disputes amicably, there are ways we can help. If your spouse is resistant to an amicable divorce, then we are able to provide guidance and advice in those situations as well.



The lawyers at Gittens & Associates can assist you in pursing any of the following procedures:


  • Separation agreement – this is an amicable, out of court way to resolve any outstanding issues related to your separation. You will be able to resolve your family law matter privately, which is the ideal way to enforce your rights while saving you the pain and costs associated with the formal court process. 
  • Uncontested divorce – this is a process in which your spouse is served with a divorce application and he or she doesn’t contest the divorce or raise any issues. This can be done as a joint divorce, where neither of you unilaterally initiates any court action against the other and instead, both of you inform the court of your intention to divorce. 
  • Contested divorce – this is a process which is initiated when negotiations fail and you need to utilize a formal litigation process to uphold and protect your legal rights. This process is used whether you’re the applicant or whether you are responding to a claim brought by your spouse. 
  • Foreign divorce opinion letter – this is necessary when you want to marry in Canada but were previously divorced outside of Canada. It is necessary to validate the foreign divorce in Canada.
