What Our Clients Say

Chyanne Sharma is an organized, well-spoken, thoughtful, no-nonsense lawyer who has restored my faith in the legal system. For years, I avoided using legal resources to collect child support fearing a mountain of legal costs and stress. Chyanne was thoughtful about my budget and upfront about her costs. She was efficient and razor sharp in her research and execution - getting results quickly while reassuring me along the way. She’s affordable, for now, but her talents are deep. I’m certain she’s going to land on the city’s best family lawyer lists any day.

Marcus has a great way of distilling the important, valuable, and nascent points out of my ramblings. During mediation he was aggressive when it was needed, and he was calculating/strategic/defensive when that was needed. He is my voice of reason and he's got my back (even if that means telling me to rewrite that scathing email I typed in a fit of rage). I trust Marcus with my family law issues and I will remain his client for as long as I have to deal with my ex. Thank you, Marcus, for being my champion and my guide when I needed it the most.

Divorce in Canada usually necessitates a one-year separation, with the timeline varying due to factors like asset complexity, parenting disputes, and court schedules.

Family law mediation offers a voluntary, less formal way to resolve disputes like divorce or child custody. A neutral mediator guides the process, facilitating discussions and helping parties work toward a mutually acceptable agreement. The process includes initial meetings, expression of concerns, and drafting a settlement, which can be made legally binding. Mediation is often quicker, less costly, and less stressful than court proceedings, but its suitability varies by case.
