If you are dealing with a family law issue in Toronto, Musson Law can help by consistently fighting for your rights and your future.

Our family law attorneys are dedicated to helping you reach an acceptable resolution to difficult issues. Our goal, at Musson Law, is to protect you and your children while guiding you through the legal process with the least amount of stress and anxiety. Lawyer Anna-Marie Musson is a highly experienced negotiator who will seek a resolution that is in the best interests of you and your children. It is almost a given that those going through a divorce, a child custody issue, or other family law issues are anxious about their future.
The fear of the unknown can be very powerful, and the knowledgeable Musson Law lawyers will go the extra mile to help alleviate many of those fears by providing you with the information you need to make the tough decisions you now face. When you choose Musson Law, we can help you with any of the following family law issues:
- Dispute Resolution, including arbitration, mediation, and collaborative law, are always on the table at Musson Law.
- Divorce is almost always difficult, however, at Musson Law, we work hard to make it a less difficult, less contentious process. Our overarching goal is to help you move forward with your life.
- Spousal support can be a difficult area of divorce to navigate. One spouse often believes he or she is entitled to spousal support, while the spouse who will be paying the spousal support is virtually never in favor of doing so. The goal is to ensure the outcome is fair for both parties.
- Child Custody is another facet of family law that has the potential of becoming contentious. The goal of all concerned should always be the best interests of the child, yet this can sometimes be difficult for those involved to clearly see. Your Musson Law attorney will help you reach a child custody solution that works for all those involved.
- Child support is based on a specific formula, although a judge can deviate from that formula when warranted. Because child support is based on a formula, there is little room for argument—the needs of the child are the top priority.
- Separation agreements can be extremely important both during the separation and later on. For this reason, you should always have a lawyer involved in your separation agreement.
- High net worth individuals will have additional issues to address. It is extremely important that your Toronto lawyer has significant experience in high net worth divorce.
- Grey divorce—More and more older couples are divorcing, and there are specific issues related to grey divorce that are not present in the divorce of younger couples. At Musson Law, we are well aware of these issues and will work hard to ensure a fair outcome.
- Net Worth Protection Agreements, Marriage Contracts, and Cohabitation Agreements—Addressing certain marital issues prior to marriage can be a smart step for virtually all couples. Of course, no one ever expects their marriage to end up in trouble, yet it often happens. When an agreement or contract exists, it can help smooth the way during a breakup.
Why is Family Law So Important?
In society, members owe certain rights and duties to one another. While this sounds like a relatively simple premise, in truth, it is not. Rights vs. duties disputes can result in never-ending conflicts, which is where family law and family lawyers come in. Families are connected through blood and marriage, as well as through many other avenues—adoption, stepparents, same-sex couples, and common-law partners, to name just a few. Families are held together by emotional strings, yet any number of highly sensitive “triggers” can result in complications—divorce, spousal support, child custody, child support, access, property division, and many others as well. These complications can often benefit from strong legal help from those committed to helping individuals move forward with their life.
Family law—particularly when collaborative law, arbitration, and mediation are involved—provide a rational approach to helping people resolve personal, emotional disputes. Family laws help facilitate the rights and duties of families, providing a means for conflicting parties to resolve the dispute—often before court becomes necessary. You can expect your Toronto family lawyer to guide you through the legal issues associated with your unique situation, advise you about the likely outcomes should you choose to go to court, file all documents necessary in a timely manner while strategizing the right legal course of action on your behalf.
Your attorney will help you identify alternate methods of settling your dispute outside of court while thoroughly explaining the risks and benefits of these methods. Your family law lawyer will always discuss and negotiate on your behalf with the opposing party, then draft and formalize agreements reached to facilitate the final judgments in an efficient manner. As you might imagine, facing all the issues associated with your family law issue on your own can be overwhelming and intimidating, to say the least. This is why it is so important to choose a highly experienced Toronto lawyer to help you get through your family law issue.
