Family Law

Don’t misunderstand us, but please let’s be clear – we WILL “fight” for you, however, if you’re “out for blood,” we’re the wrong law firm for you.

At Klein Law we understand that Family Law is about people and relationships; most times, relationships gone bad. Solving complex family problems requires both effective advocacy and skillful negotiation. It also requires the ability to listen and understand one’s needs. We can assist you in all areas of Family Law.

Our practice, which is more meditative than litigious, is to promote out-of-court settlements. This is to the client’s advantage!

Please contact us today to speak with a Family Law Lawyer. If you’re simply browsing and would like some preliminary information, which should give you some initial guidance and direction, please visit our Resources Page and browse these links:

Child Custody

LET YOUR CHILDREN’S BEST INTERESTS BE YOUR MAIN FOCUS

Start this new chapter as separated or divorced parents on the right track.

When parents have made the decision to separate or divorce, the next important decision they have to make concerns the care of their children. Parenting arrangements can take several forms, taking into account the children’s living arrangements, specifically their physical residence, and parental decision-making in the children’s day-to-day upbringing. These are not easy to work out and have lasting effects and repercussions.

Let Klein Law help you make decisions surrounding your family issues affecting your children, such as custody, access and child support, so you can move forward and start a new chapter in your life – on the right track.


Adoption

FACILITATING PRIVATE, STEP-PARENT AND RELATIVE ADOPTIONS FOR FAMILIES

From proposed adoption placement to the legal adoption completion, Klein Law is with you every step of the way.

To adopt a child, there are three basic “factors” you need to consider.

1. Actually finding a child.

2. Getting a home study done by a Ministry approved Adoption Practitioner.

3. Determining what type of adoption you are seeking. There are different procedures, legislation and agencies in Ontario for domestic and international (inter-country) adoptions and relative and stepparent adoptions.

In Ontario, private adoptions are handled by individuals known as Licensees and Adoption Agencies, both licensed by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.

Marty Klein is a Licensee, licensed by the Province of Ontario to place children for private (domestic) adoptions within Ontario. As Licensee, Marty is responsible for the overall management of a proposed adoption placement and subsequent probationary period, until the legal completion of the adoption.

Marty also handles relative and step-parent adoptions, guiding you through the obtaining of consents and the final Adoption Order.
