How do you know you are getting the best family law lawyer Kingston has to offer?
Kingston has a wealth of family lawyers, so it’s important to pick and choose. Your budget will dictate which lawyer is best for you. If you can’t afford their hourly rate, or you can’t afford their retainer, then that lawyer is obviously out of the picture. You have to also think beyond the retainer and look at subsequent steps in the legal proceedings. Will you run out of money before the lawyer can represent you at a motion? If yes, then get a more affordable lawyer or consider a limited scope retainer. Are you predominantly concerned with parenting issues (custody and access) or financial issues? Lawyers have different strengths and some lawyers predominantly deal with one area or another. You will ultimately have to meet with your lawyer, to determine their opinion of your case, and how you would feel about them representing you?
How does Kingston Family Law compare to other cities?
Family and divorce law is the same across all cities in Ontario. However, there are some slight differences. The family court in Kingston is a unified family court, meaning the Superior Court of Justice and Provincial Court of Justice is combined. Usually, common law couples apply to the provincial court and married couples apply to the Superior Court. Superior Court fees are higher than Provincial Court, and Superior Court has the authority to hear property issues.
Many lawyers act as mediators in Toronto. Few do this in Kingston. Collaborative Family Law is more often used in Kingston, where lawyers try to resolve things outside of court, via negotiations.
